What Would You Like To Hear In A Techdirt Podcast?

from the questions,-questions dept

Many years ago (many, many, many years ago) before "podcasting" existed (actually, before iPods existed), we briefly tried to do a "Techdirt online radio show," which had a terrible name I won't repeat here. We ended up doing two or three episodes, I think -- and the only one that was any good accidentally got deleted right after we recorded it. That said, in the intervening years, the whole podcasting thing sprung up and it's all pretty well established now. We've been tossing around the idea of doing a podcast ourselves. I've got some ideas for what I think it should be... but I'm also curious about what people here would like to hear in a podcast. There's no guarantee we'll end up doing exactly what anyone suggests, but we're hoping it provides some ideas. Would you like to just hear me and some of the other contributors talking about the week's news? Or would you want interviews with interesting guests? Something entirely different? Do you prefer longer podcasts or the quick hit types? Let us know what would be most interesting. Thanks!

    I'm a regular podcast listener (Kevin Pollak, Nerdist, MacBreak, Twit, Bullseye, Freakonomics, On the Media, WTF, Larry Miller, Talkin Toons, The Future and You, and Penn's Sunday School) who would be interested in a TechDirt podcast. I really enjoy the weekly round-up of the best comments and would enjoy listening to a regular host discuss those posts with that week's comment reviewer. When possible, getting in contact for a quick Q&A, over Skype, with some of the authors/subjects of that week's posts would be good, too. Not necessarily for a whole 30/40-minute podcast, but for a quick 5-min back and forth. Please avoid the phrase "Thanks for having me on." It means, "I appreciate that you were kidding me."
