Clarifying things about Podshow…

Hi all,

We will have more to say about this on our next show, but we wanted to post now and make a couple of things clear.  Many of you may have heard of Podshow+, which is Adam Curry’s (former MTV VJ, then the self-described (and it’s fairly accurate) “godfather of podcasting”) new podcasting venture–the system just went live a day or so ago, and apparently anyone who ever submitted a show to Podcast Alley (which Podshow also owns) has now been added to that service.  Now we have nothing against new listeners, of course, but the problem is that from what we can tell, everything on Podshow+ which refers to Upon Further Review goes through Podshow+–that is to say, it looks as if we are sponsored, hosted, and produced by Podshow+.  Even show downloads look as if they are running through Podshow+–which would mean many people could happily stay on Podshow+ and never come to our site at all.

We haven’t yet decided what we’re going to do here, but we are not fans of having our show essentially misrepresented in this way, and we want to make clear right now that we are not affiliated in any way with Podshow+.  We may or may not pull our show from this service and from Podcast Alley–but in the meantime, we would strongly suggest that Podshow+ reconsider this way of doing business.  It may not be illegal (we’re not sure about that yet), but it sure seems pretty sleazy to us.  We’ll see you Tuesday.

Your country, ’tis of…er…you…

Greetings and salutations!

Welcome, one and all, to Upon Further Review, the new review podcast/website where two ex-debaters finally get the last word…on everything. Every week Greg and Clea will release a new half-hour episode of reviewing goodness for your listening pleasure, and anything and everything is fair game–movies, plays, television shows, games, personal hygiene products (er…maybe), restaurants, hotels, amusement parks, podcasts, and anything else we (or you) can think of. Take a look at our Contact page to find out more about how you can get involved with the show–we’re always looking for new things to review, so please feel free to make suggestions or other random comments semi-related to the show through the various contact methods. Between episodes, Greg and Clea will periodically post various bits of information, including mini-reviews as the situation warrants and time permits.

Thanks for coming by and checking out Upon Further Review. We hope you like what you hear, and we look forward to hearing a lot more from you all (like you can look forward to hearing a lot more from us)!
