Start Up

Post by strawman » Thu May 28, 2015 10:59 pm

Alex Blumberg of NPR's Planet Money quit the show to create a Podcast called Start Up. The first Season describes real-time recordings of pitching for investors, looking for staff/partners. It's a fascinating new model for podcasting. Their objective is to aggregate new podcasts. I think it's destined to be successful, and fascinating to follow.

Here's a link: gimletmedia.com/show/startup/

I'm holding out for a service that filters out bad episodes and reruns (NPR podcasts quite frequently rerun a show and don't even bother to indicate that it's a repeat!) from my existing feeds.

Funny how NPR reruns are annoying, but Gilligan's Island and Drabblecast reruns are Classics.

We finally have the platform and content to potentially satisfy every appetite. Google will probably figure out the filter, once it's databases and algorithms finish downloading our brains. Thanks for adding the link.
