The BBC promotes Claybourne

I’m getting hundreds of emails today from people in Britian who heard the first two episodes of our groundbreaking podcast drama "Claybourne" played on the BBC and they want MORE!

Apparently it was played on a BBC Radio 4 show hosted by Rosie Goldsmith. Thanks Rosie!

Downloading the show is pretty simple. Start here:
http://claybourne.thepodcastnetwork.com/2005/02/19/claybourne-arrival-and-warning/

and where it says "MP3", right click, choose "save as.." or "save file" and then save the mp3 to your hard drive. Then you can open it up and play it on your PC or move it to your iPod and play it there!

I really need to find an easy way for people to download all 96 episodes in one hit without having to pull down a single 500Mb file. Any suggestions?

  1. ….. Show them how to use podcatchers fella, and let RSS do it’s thing.

    Alternatively, provide 10 x 50mb podcasts for them to download using good old “save as …”

    Just my 2p .. hope this helps

  2. Michael, the only problem with bittorrent is that I would love to be able to track the downloads so we can see how well it is doing. It would solve the audience’s problem though, you’re right. The other problem is I don’t want to have to ask people to download and install software just so they can listen to a podcast.

    Geoff, podcatchers is good, but again, I would love to avoid asking people to install software.

  3. Cam, I really don’t see an “_easy_ way for people to download all 96 episodes in one hit without having to pull down a single 500Mb file”. Either they download/install software (Bittorrent client, or RSS client, as Geoff mentioned), or they’re stuck downloading “a single 500MB file”. I don’t see any other options. Besides, you’d be educating “regular folks” about two powerful, emerging technologies.
