Jason Kottke is my favourite blogger of all time and today, he announced the latest edition in his microscopic media empire called “Kottke Ride Home”.
It’s a bloggy daily podcast featuring some of the day’s most interesting news and links in just 15 minutes, and you can subscribe to it on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to your podcasts (more options). The cool thing is that the podcast is very much its own thing with its own engaging host. It’s not a recap of the site in audio form, but instead is a whole different crop of news & information from the Kottke.org Media Universe.
The first episode* covers topics such as AI-assisted MRI scans, the anniversary of women’s suffrage in America, and the “Lost Colony” of English settlers from 1587.
You can subscribe to Kottke Ride Home on Apple Podcasts or your podcast manager of choice. I’m super excited for this and you should definitely check it out. Also, read his announcement post as it gives further context into why he’s launched the podcast.
*If you look at the podcast on Apple Podcasts, you’ll see 70 episodes. Turns out it used to be Good News Ride Home but there was a “change in name and partnership”. (source)
