Community Roundup Week Ending April 7
Podcasting in WordPress
I heard from Topher DeRosia today that WPPodcasts has amplified over 11,000 WordPress podcast episodes. That’s a lot of hours worth of listening to content centered around WordPress. And that’s not a bad thing.
I’ve heard the sentiment that “we don’t need any more WordPress podcasts,” but, I respectfully disagree. (And not just because I love podcasting.)
Every podcaster tells a different story, has a different approach, and a different niche. And every one of them (us) is doing something to help move forward the open source project and the community at large. Whether it’s reviewing themes and plugins, interviewing community members, or talking about the future of WordPress, each podcaster has something to share. And that’s a beautiful thing.
If you’re looking for something new to listen to, check out WPPodcasts.com. There’s a lot of great curated content there, and you just might find something that interests you!

Photo of the Week

I have the same thoughts here on having plenty of space, and the need, for many voices in WordPress on various podcasts. 🙂
I make some time to stop by and give a like or message on other platforms, like YouTube, to try and signal boost the good people in particular and WordPress in general. But almost all of the content I consume is directly from that sites blog, or a podcast.
