Good news! The Glowing Dial Podcast has been accepted by ITunes and is now available there. All the episodes we have archived are there. The new episodes (when we get started again early 2014) will be posted there too.

All episodes now posted!

Good news! I now have all episodes of The Glowing Dial posted! We decided to go with the Poderator.com method of posting our shows as podcasts. We deleted our podOmatic.com account because, as I said previously, we could not afford a paid account that would handle all our shows.

The shows can be found by going to glowingdial.com and clicking on Shows. Here you will also find the addendums we did for some of the shows. Addendums being audio files that were related to that particular show but not edited as part of the show proper.

We are still not without our problems however. One problem is that our Archived Shows xml feed does not seem to load properly in Internet Explorer but looks fine in Firefox. I have no clue as to why this is. One other problem that perplexes me concerns the embedding of audio files on our webpage. I refer to the aforementioned Addendums. I wanted to post these on our Shows page at glowingdial.com but every code variation I tried did not show up on Firefox at all; started playing the audio file automatically on Chrome (despite the code telling it NOT to autoplay); played all the files at once on IE!

I wanted to embed those files so that, again, the page would have a more modern look to it. I ended up simply putting hyperlinks to the Addendum files, old fashioned but seems to work.

Please let me know how these links and the xml feed work for you and whatever browser you are using. 

Thanks!

More shows encoded and posted

Just got the rest of the YUSA shows encoded and posted over at our Poderator.com account. That's episodes P69 thru P88. Also got a few of the longer NET shows posted, more to come.

I don't think we're going to post any more to podOmatic.com unless enough donations come through to cover its cost. We'd need about $25 a month to cover the amount of stuff we have to post.

Go to http://www.glowingdial.com/shows.html and click on the Poderator.com link to see the latest.
