The Future of Podcasting with Dave Jones of Podcasting 2.0 and The Podcast Index

The panel discusses Dave Jones’s work with the podcast index, a searchable database of podcast episodes. They also discuss his experience as a podcaster, and how he got involved in the industry.

Adam Curry and Dave Winer met 12 years ago while working on a project called the AECT for poets. They later spun out of that project to create the Freedom controller, which became the basis for Adam’s no agenda show. The podcast index is the first product that they launched together. It is a way to collect and read RSS feeds.

The podcast index is a free API for app developers to use to write podcast apps. The podcasting 2.0 side of things is just our effort to push podcasting forward, feature wise, to build crazy new stuff that will eventually end up in every player and hosting company, as new features that are not bound behind some huge company like Spotify or Apple.

Apple and Spotify will both adopt podcasting 2.0 features for different reasons. Apple will do so because it is ultimately good for their customers, while Spotify will see the benefits of adopting these features without having to incur the costs.
