It appears that Google is keeping things in check for G1 Android apps.
A podcast isn't a podcast without a xml/rss feed!
@DeVito That's good that Google is doing _some_ checking now. It used to be the wild west.
@Joe Yeah, that's coming. I'm still deciding whether I want to write a CMS interface for uploading the podcast or if I just want to update the RSS feed manually.
I expected you would be working on the podcast feed.
Not bad for Ep#1. I didn't like the intro music...a little too generic... like an early Sunday morning public affairs program. I think you should also break the podcast into segments and transition into those segments
@Joe The intro music was just a generic "Anchorman" style intro until I find/create music that I like for an intro.
I'm still out to lunch on the "segment" idea. I like the way TWiT podcasts work, where it's a conversation. Granted, I'm the only one talking (for now). If I split it into segments it turns into a Loaded or WebbAlert, a pseudo-news program. I don't know which I like better, but I do need to decide soon.
It's a bit long. It's 27 minutes long. Also the content is not unexpected, an apple fan raving about apple products.
The sound quality is good, the music is retro cool and I liked that.
@garrett I actually think future shows will be longer. Though, I will try to keep them on topic. This episode was more of a "whatever was on my mind at the time" show. I plan to have a few set topics for each episode to make it go smoothly.
