I am member of a couple of Matrix rooms, incl HPR. Matrix is a good place for talking.

I think the direction is that a person first knows about HPR and then join HPR Matrix room.

But my interpretation of the idea to use Discord is the opposite direction: Persons not knowing about HPR should learn and get interested in HPR thanks to learning about it on Discord. I have never, to my knowledge, used Discord. So I do not know how Discord works or if the idea makes sense, but this is my understanding of the Discord suggestion.

To some degree I the discussion has gotten away from the point: have an active place to engage with HPR.

Over the past month or so (since this conversation started) is we had 3-4 podcasts mention the Matrix room. I hadn't even heard it existed before that -- I don't read the footer, apparently.

Given that the matrix channel has > 80 people in it already, let's put some more focus there and use it more! :)

Having used Discord a fair bit, I don't know how well it would work as a discovery tool. Much like matrix you need to join or be invited to a Discord instance to have discussions there.

It serves the same purpose as Matrix, IRC, and to some degree these comments.

Discoverability will be easier with platforms like Mastadon, Twitter, Facebook (yuck) and maybe YouTube where people find things via algorithms and discovery features rather than having to know that something exists in the first place.

That said, if we want to "market" the show, the best thing anyone can do is actually recommend it to someone. If everyone who hears Ken (or Dave) read this comment on the June Community News were to *really* recommend HPR to one other person, that would go a very long way to providing some new ears and new voices.

@hpr There were some good points made it this show. Maybe I should l subscribe to Urandom 🙂

I had not considered that some of HPR's "problem episodes" would keep someone from contributing new shows.

Has anyone else felt hesitant to be associated with HPR because one some of the content?


norrist

@hpr A similar question about show quality.

Earlier this year, I rushed to finish a show because the queue was low. But I don't think it was a bad show. 4039.
Also, I had Intended to re-record 4035, but sent it in as is because the queue was low.

That is 2 of my 20 ish shows that I may not have otherwise submitted, except to fill empty spots in the upcoming week.

@norrist We have the reserve queue now, so there is less need to rush shows to fill the queue.

If you have a show that is complete and will not "age" then consider using the reserve queue.

@norrist @hpr

Yes happens all the time, most recent this week.

The most frustrating was a loosing an organisation that promoted women coders, and the very day I was arranging an interview, some show got posted taking advantage of "We do not vet, edit, moderate or in any way censor any of the audio you submit" but skipping over the "we trust you to do that."

Over two years of interaction down the drain
