This was originally the default “first post” entry that comes with a new wordpress install. It’s MINE now, though!
I’ve been needing to re-make dogphilosophy.net into something useful for years now, so here goes. I’m planning to turn this into my oggcasting/podcasting site. I’ll be moving my handful of episodes thus far over here shortly, and then slowly adding to them.
Once it’s all working, you should be able to get a feed of every bit of audio I put out (and, perhaps eventually, video), or individual feeds for each topical category of audio presentation I come up with. Initially I have:
- “Stir-Fried Stochasticity” – real science for nerds and normals alike. Most “science news” stories are regurgitated and parroted press-releases that don’t actually tell you what’s really going on. In “Stir-Fried Stochasticity”, each episode discusses an actual scientific publication (not a press release!) directly, or occasionally more than one publication on the same topic. As of today, there are three episodes done with a fourth finally being worked on and released Real Soon Now.
- “Perceptive Peripatetic” – A place for me to share places or things that I happen to notice while I’m out wandering the world. As of today, there is only one episode (on “The Breakdancing Ghost of Narada Falls”, regarding something I saw at a particular spot inside of Mount Ranier National Park in Washington State).
- “The Computer Is My Friend” – There are no episodes for this yet, but I figure it’s only a matter of time before my own computer-nerdity kicks in and I feel compelled to share some sort of techno-spiffiness with the world.
If I manage to do this properly, you’ll be able to subscribe to the feed or feeds like normal “podcasts” in either high-quality Ogg Vorbis or the older (but more widely supported) MP3 formats, or just listen to the audio directly from the website with any web browser that supports HTML5, Java, or Adobe Flash.
Geolocation will be included where appropriate as well.
Comments and suggestions are welcome. I’m doing this purely as a hobby, and the topics and rate at which new episodes are generated and released will be directly proportional to the amount of interest anyone (besides me) has in it.
