Adding easier additions to the Podcast site

One of the problems with our podcast site is the time it takes to add a station. Most podcast sites just scrape the main ipodder database and put in what they find, but we’ve tried to get more details than you can find just from the directory (such as location and user-defined tags) that aren’t found in the XML. But we finally had to relent and allow for an easier addition process. Users can quickly add their podcasts and we do the heavy data entry at the back end by our parsers. The problem is that itunes tags are a bit non-standard RSS and I haven’t gotten around to fixing that just yet. Next project.]]>
