Brian Richards and I cover the week in WordPress news with a new short format (15 minute) podcast. The Excerpt is part of the Draft podcast, and will be balanced by long form interviews.
Welcome to The Excerpt, part of the Post Status Draft podcast, which was submitted to iTunes recently. Draft will consist of two formats: long form interviews like I've done for a long time, and The Excerpt for a summary of news around the WordPress ecosystem.
With The Excerpt, we'll cover a few of our favorite stories from the Post Status Club over the last week or two. The primary goal is to keep it short and informational: we set a hard stop at 15 minutes.
Content covered in The Excerpt will largely be samples from the members only content, but may also cover free articles and resources. You don't have to be a member to enjoy The Excerpt, but it is a nice way to preview what members get every day.
Here's Episode 1, which Brian Richards hosted with me:
- WordPress Beta 1 & Beta 2 — April 22nd live date
- Yoast, WooCommerce, AffiliateWP, and others’ security updates.
- Growth from free themes.
I will try and have guest hosts as much as possible. They may rotate or it might just be a few people that are relatively consistent. We'll see how it goes, and your feedback will always be welcome. Let me know what you think about the new show.
