An Update on The Great Podcast Experiment with The Ongoing History of New Music

If you’ve been following along with The Great Podcast Experiment with The Ongoing History of New Music, I’m pleased to report that after five weeks, we’ve broken through the 20,000 21,500 download mark. Thank you!

We’re converting new shows into free podcasts a few days after they air on the radio (Wednesdays are the day we post new ones) and can be found wherever you prefer to get your podcasts. The vast majority seem to prefer iTunes, but Android fans have their own places to go. You can also go here to listen, download or subscribe to an RSS feed.

And now, a new development.

If you spend any time listening to radio in Canada, you’ve probably heard the commercial for Radioplayer Canada by now. This is an app for your smartphone that gives you instant real-time access to more than 400 radio stations across Canada. But it also gives you a chance to listen to programs that you might have missed. Think of it as a PVR for radio.


For example, if you navigate to The Edge on the app and click the “More” button, you’ll see a list of Ongoing History shows. Click any of them and you’ll stream the podcast instantly. This avoids the need for a download.

It’s another good reason to get the Radioplayer App. Get it here for free. Good to know, right?
