We came across an ingenious idea this week: A theme-based aggregated podcast feed. Several of the folks who make fan podcasts devoted to ABC’s hit TV-show Lost got together and created the Lost Podcasting Network (RSS).
Their network is basically a weblog, where each post is a different podcast episode. The RSS feed, therefore, is an aggregation all seven indie podcasts, plus the official ABC Lost podcast. Effectively, they have created a theme-based channel or podcast network.
It would be cool, however, if you could use an RSS service like FeedBurner, to create an aggregate feed by auto-splicing together any number of exisiting podcast feeds. That way, you could dynamically create a podcast network/channel. Sure, you can do this with technologies such as OPML or use RSS aggregators, but you are still having to manage separate feeds. Using this technique, you could splice together your favorite entertainment feeds to create your own special entertainment podcast. Or, it would at least allow various podcasters to get together more easily and create these aggregate podcast networks.
Does anyone know if there is technology out there that would enable or is enabling something like this?
