Podcasting has been around for 20 years. Many revolutions have happened since then: DSL connections, smartphones, social networks, artificial intelligence everywhere… But Podcasting stayed still and its decentralized architecture resisted to the big corporations. In this talk we will show how the Podcasting 2.0 community is reinventing Podcasting by adding tons of new features, while keeping all this interoperable. We will quickly demonstrate how this actually works with Castopod, an open-source podcast hosting solution.

What is a podcast? An RSS feed with an enclosure. That's a podcast.

This made Adam react in Podcasting 2.0 Episode 121: "Lawful but Awful"… What do you think of his impersonation skills? 🤣

This is not a wish list. This exists. This works. This has been implemented and it's working now. It's working now in many applications, platforms and services.

Alternate enclosures, Boostagrams, Chapters, Episodes, Seasons, Funding, GUID, Live, Location, Locked, Medium, OP3, Person, Podping, Sat Streaming, Social Interact, Soundbite, Transcript, Txt

What influences your content? If you are on the open internet, you have to follow the regulations.And that's it. You are the only one in control of your content.
