Podcasts & the Main Page

Hello Ladies and Gents…

As you know, WTFR is not only a platform for live shows, but also a platform for podcasts.  Podcasts allow people to get their confidence up to do live shows.  Some will make it to live shows, some will not, but it’s worth a try as long as you have the best of intentions at hand.  That ultimately being, to get the message out there, when it comes to what is really happening in the world, rather than what we are being told.  There are going to be some small changes however, here at WTFR.

From now on, podcasts will only make it to the Random Podcast menu, rather than the main page.  Podcasts will also have a limit of 30 mins and no more.  The reason for this, is that I want to encourage people to take up a live position with the network, rather than remaining as a podcast, because taking calls and utilising the chatroom for feedback whilst live is the whole idea.

The shows here at WTFR are not just shows for the host.  They are shows for the audience as well, whether it be the audience in the chatroom or the audience listening via 107.9 FM to the audience listening via the stream on the Internet.  I would like to see this idea mature, because without audience feedback, it’s as good as fighting the good fight alone as far as I am concerned.

So, if you want to do a podcast, bear in mind that you need to limit that podcast to 30 mins and that said podcast will be placed in the top menu on the website, rather than on the main page.

Thanks for reading.

SS.

  1. Although I will be affected the most because I do a large amount of the prerecorded podcasts, I think this decision will help in the long run as I hope to start doing live shows soon. also, I think that we’d all improve with more feedback in the chatroom and comment sections.
