There’s been a problem since the dawn of podcasting – how to find interesting, new things to listen to.
For the past year, my strategy: subscribe to the notoriously noisy BlogDigger for say, a day or so then frantically unsubscribe – the phrase “drink from the firehose” seems appropriate here. Listen to everything over the next 3 weeks, toss out 98% hay, keep the 2% needle.
Highly inefficient. Unfortunately, nothing better existed.
From my predictions – there’s a good mix of music, tech, public radio, audio blogs, and stuff less easily definable. These are all good things.
Blogdigger has been wiped from my aggregator. I don’t expect it back ever. AmigoFish is my new friend.
The oddest thing about my experience with AmigoFish?
Everytime I skim the list, I think, “Dave thinks I should listen to this”. Now, that’s no more true with these podcasts than it is with books at Amazon or films at Netflix – but it makes me feel better about AmigoFish than those other places.
UPDATE: AmigoFish adds RSS Prediction Feeds. I knew AmigoFish wouldn’t be useful until it had prediction feeds – I didn’t think it’d turn into my favorite ‘podcast’ in under a week.
