I’d like to schedule a kick off meeting week of Jan 29th. We’ll have Castopod installed by that time, and can showcase the instance, and get everyone onboarded.
Here’s the background:
I previously posted a
members only call to kick off a working group around the Castopod
@aeisenberg and @rndeon said they’d be interested in participating, and @evan said he could be the first podcast user on the system.
Since then, we had call with some Social.Coop including @mnoyes and had the idea of making this an open working group, accessible in public and available for anyone in the Fediverse to come join and learn about configuring,
What we think this Working Group will do
Have a kick…
Kickoff Meeting Feb 1st
Please register to join us
The core work will be asynchronous here in the forum, so anybody can participate.
If there are specific questions or things you’d like to discuss, please add a comment below.
Also, please introduce yourself!

Last option possibly typoe, it reads
4pm EST / 7pm EST
Gathering it should be 4PM PST
yes, correct! I am not going to edit it because that resets the poll!
@cogdog! Added co-op member group to your account so you should be able to see everything now.
Thanks! I liked seeing the ability to login into Discourse via Mastodon… filing away for investigation
It looks like we got 6 people for Feb 1st at 4pm PST / 7pm EST so let’s go with that.
I’ve setup an event, if you register it will add it to your calendar.
I’m hosting this on my personal Zoom account this time. We might experiment with meet.coop / Big Blue Button in the future.
I’m interested though my knowledge of Castopod is having read a link about it.
And perhaps marginally related might be
Radio Free Fedi
@cogdog we are all learning together! I did a test install and clicked around a bit. The challenge I will throw to you and for the kick off is — how do we learn and document together so more can get involved.
i also have never used Castopod but i’ve been podcasting (it’s just audio on the internet people! nothing more nothing less
!) since 2005 so hard can it be #FamousLastWords I think it will be great to document it initially from an newbie point of view!
Thank you for this!
I’ll try to connect to Zoom… if I have not fallen asleep. (I’m in Paris.)
Unfortunately, I’ll need to miss the first meeting as I now have had a conflict come up. I look forward to seeing what you’re experience is getting started and where additional documentation may be needed.
Benjamin as I messaged you on Mastodon — we’ll find a time to host you. I’m also going to record this, so you’ll see where we get to.
I hope the working group can expose more people to Castopod, and we’ll refer to existing docs / contribute where we can.
FYI for those that don’t know, Benjamin is the founder of Castopod. Welcome!
No worries! We’ll do more of this and generally everyone who wants can follow along asynchronously here in the forum.
Darn. I just had a conflict come up as well. I am not going to be able to make it either.
No worries! It will be recorded. I’ll also provision you a user account – can you be a superadmin with me?
A colleague in Vancouver area Erica runs this castopod
Here are my raw point form notes, I’ll get some more things up above.
I need to edit the video and grab the audio and add it as an episode.
I’ve added everyone as “authors” on the podcast. Don’t know what the different podcast roles do. TO DOCUMENT
@aeisenberg as an “admin” on the cowgee podcast, too.
CoSocial, Fission, DWebYVR
Interested in non big tech solutions
Non profit Open Education Global
Podcast for my organization
Can you move your podcast? (between castopods?)
TO DOCUMENT if castopod has a github issue for this
Role documentation – Manager
managers can create new podcasts?
later, boris tried to add Alan
@cogdog as an owner and/or remove himself you can’t remove the owner? Can you transfer owner?
@cogdog I might delete that podcast and let you recreate it if owners can’t be switched TO DOCUMENT
Alan’s @-mention didn’t arrive? TO EXPERIMENT
photo images are big
bug – if wrong image, then extra categories and other things are cleared
You can toggle between podcast accounts
is this the Erica H from the northern voice days?
Thanks. Was the meeting recorded?
I was able to log in to castopod. It was a little confusing to follow a podcast since I had to enter my handle and then get redirected in a popup window, but I guess that’s a side effect of federation.
Is there an admin page I can look at?
