Federated podcasts, maybe @funkwhale could support this?

I would listen to an ActivityPub Podcast, get the latest news on new projects and maybe they could interview developers/users.

@dansup @funkwhale there's no need for federated podcasts, but maybe a federated index would be nice? Idk

podcasts are just rss feeds tho

@pea

Yeah, but you could extend podcasts to the fediverse via AP. The idea would be to find the proper verb/implementation to send notifications to podcast followers when new content is published.

@funkwhale

@dansup @funkwhale seems like that would just make it easier to miss updates as opposed to using a podcast app or feed reader

Maybe when AP software with autotagging, categories, etc, shows up, but I don't think it really makes sense with the current state of the fediverse

@pea @dansup @funkwhale you don't have to infinite scroll and not store your tl position ;) I should probably work on that patch...

@dansup Doesn't AP already support attaching media? Both it an OStatus are perfectly usable for publishing audio and having people react to it

@dansup @funkwhale To be clear, do you mean "federated podcast discovery"? Because podcasts themselves are quite decentralized already, especially with tech like Dat.

@dansup @funkwhale

I suggested this a few months ago.

The lead dev was very open and receptive, but wanted to stay focused on music.

@dansup @funkwhale ActivityPub as an RSS replacement.

Sounds about right!

@fungalsphere @funkwhale @dansup Just gonna poke my opinion in here: RSS still has a much lower barrier to entry, so it's not really a replacement at this point.
@Michcioperz @fungalsphere @funkwhale @dansup it's possible to host a podcast with a static site, we don't need to turn podcast hosting into a Whole Thing
