We're moving from a plain ol' RSS feed for the podcast to a wordpress.org blog:
Podcast subscriptions should be unchanged by this (though may be
affected by the FeedBurner merger w/ Google).
It's brand-new now of course, but soon we hope to have some regular
text entries to go with the podcasts.
Anyway: we're looking for contributors, both for the podcast and the
blog. If you're interested in writing or speaking (or singing!) for
the conlang audience, please let us know. (David Peterson will be
leading the writing effort.)
The criteria are the same: have something to say that's interesting to
a broad set of conlangers, and do it in a way that's high-quality.
We'll handle as much or as little of the technical & hosting parts as
you want; you just have to come up with the content.
Speaking of podcast contributors: Matt Arnold, LLG President, is
joining the LCS podcast with a revamp of the "About Lojban" series,
currently located at:
Matt already announced this on lojban-l, but: if you have suggestions
for what you'd like to see on or contribute to the podcast relating to
lojban (or other logical languages), please email him (he's CCed).
We hope to be able to bring you other specialized podcast series in the future.
If you're still not subscribed: go to http://feeds.feedburner.com/conlangs.
Recent podcasts: an interview with Thomas E. Payne (author of
Describing Morphosyntax, aka "the conlanger's bible"); high-quality
video of Donald Boozer & Lila Sadkin's talks from LCC2; and an
introductory discussion of what conlangs are in the first place.
