I’m working on a slightly longer blog entry about podcasts (that seems to be a recurring theme, lately) but for now wanted to share something fun I whipped together.
Over on /r/podcasts (reddit) there was some demand for showcasing a random podcast each day from the weekly link sharing thread; it would be next to impossible to listen to each one in there and recommend something in a personal matter, so I offered the next best thing: an automated, randomly selected podcast of the day.
The long and short of it: Each day I run a Tasker task I created to find the weekly episode thread, and randomly select an episode. Then I create a new post.
That’s it, and it works pretty well. I’m curious to know what kind of shows come up each day. Fun times!
