Exciting news! We're pleased to announce that HBP is joining The Slow Ride Podcast, Crosshairs Radio and Kids Don't Follow on the shiny new Wide Angle Podium Network of fine podcasts! No doubt the ranks will soon swell with more excellent podcasts for you to enjoy. In the meantime, head on over to wideanglepodium.com and check it out!
Why join a podcast network? In short, it's a big, wide, scary world out there, and it's full of podcasts. It makes sense for shows that share a common center and common ethos to band together. If you like HBP, you'll really like the other shows at Wide Angle Podium - and, we hope, vice versa. With a common network and shared infrastructure, we can promote one another and work together to raise funds to cover some of the cost of bringing these shows to you, the listener.
Did you say fundraise?? Why yes, I did! There will be more on this later. For now - rest assured, The Honest Bicycle Program will always be free to download and listen, if you so choose. It is a labor of love, after all. But HBP, like every other podcast in the known universe, is not free to produce! And a little love sure makes it easier to devote the time that goes into recording and producing the show (I know, it's hard to believe any actual effort goes into HBP, but it's true!). So if you want to kick in a little cash to HBP or any of the other shows on Wide Angle Podium Network to show your love and appreciation, there's a way to do that - check it out, if you are so inclined.
Finally, how will this move affect the show? Not much! The major change will be that all of our shows will live primarily over on Wide Angle Podium - find our page here. But don't worry - everything will always be linked from right here at standarddouble.com/whbp so there's no need to change a thing. If you get the show via RSS (iTunes or podcast apps), that feed should automatically update. If not, try unsubscribing and resubscribing and that should fix it. And if it doesn't, let us know!
That's it for now. Thanks for listening and don't forget to check out our latest episode!
