Announcing the first episode of a new podcast about the fediverse - FediverseCast! The show will feature conversations with cool fediverse makers and community members, hosted by @kevinflo

HUGE thanks to my first guest @eliotberriot creator of @funkwhale (Funkwhale)

Funkwhale was invited on the brand new @fediversecast to discuss about the state of the project, the fediverse and many other things, check it out!

Si vous souhaitez en savoir un peu plus sur où en est #Funkwhale et ce qui arrive, dans un format différent, je vous invite à écouter le @fediversecast (en prime, vous aurez droit à mon magnifique accent anglais).

C'est le premier épisode d'un podcast qui traitera du fediverse et des différents projets associés, mis en place par @kevinflo :)

@fediversecast @kevinflo Hrm, I’m having trouble finding a feed to subscribe with a podcast app. Am I missing something?

@fediversecast Is there a dedicated podcast feed or do I just subscribe to the blog feed (including articles which are not episodes)?

@fediversecast @kevinflo @eliotberriot @funkwhale enjoying the episode! Thanks. I posted the url on birdsite for the benefit of my followers there

Just finished listening to your first episode right now and was really disappointed with your rant about money at the end. I really hope you take some time to look into the ideas around anti-capitalism. Maybe interviewing more people in this space will help bring you some new prospectives but right now you are coming off as having the sort of mind set that I think is the very thing a lot of the fediverse is trying to get away from.

@fediversecast @kevinflo @eliotberriot @funkwhale also thanks to Eliot for everything they said and thank you Kevin for starting the podcast. I hope to see where it goes. And hope you make it a platform for a diverse group of people.

@fediversecast How cool is that!! 👍 I hope it won't be ActivityPub focused only? Friendica, Hubzilla, diaspora, SocialHome, GangGo will all be glad to participate, I'm sure. GNU Social, postActiv, probably, too. Please, invite them :)

@fediversecast Thank you for this new podcast and its first episode.

I'm conflicted between the fact that the show was interesting including most of its rambling vs the investment it requires to listen a +1h podcast. Would being shorter and more to the point help increasing audience? Maybe splitting interviews into different episodes when it's worth it? For instance, Funkwhale + digital rights || funding + future of Fediverse.

@fediversecast As someone who nowadays listens more podcasts than music, I wondered... What about Funkwhale for podcasts? What about FediverseCast available in Funkwhale?

(Currently I listen to podcasts exclusively from my mobile phone using AntennaPod, so I guess my question is actually whether it is possible and easy to subscribe to podcasts hosted in Funkwhale instances using RSS? Never tried.)

@kevinflo @eliotberriot @funkwhale

@quimgil Definitely something I'm open to in the future. For now just sticking with RSS

No way I know of yet to bridge RSS and activitypub, but it keeps coming up. I'm sure someone will bridge them somehow at some point

@quimgil @fediversecast @kevinflo @funkwhale there is an open issue about that already, but we have other priorities right now :)

@quimgil Thanks for listening! Honestly when we started recording I thought it'd be a 15-30 minute episode lol. I guess I'm fine with long shows if that's how the conversation goes. I've subscribed to podcasts before where each episode is ~2hrs. The good thing about podcasts is listeners can chunk their listening how they wish, skip, pause, etc.

Listened to the first episode yesterday and liked it a lot! What's special about it is that you yourselve state your opinion which causes a real talk about the topic. Please go on like that!

For a future episode I'd like to hear more about the ActivityPub protocoll from a developer perspective, how to get started, the potentials and possible use cases for federation.

Thank you very much, also for picking this interesting guest!
