I’m sitting here minding my own business, actually trying to do some work, and my friend Brent Wong (@EpicBdub) asks me about what podcasts I listen to. He also asked how to get more Twitter followers, and I don’t have a good answer, other than to ask you to consider following him: use Follow @EpicBdub.

podcastsRather than just sending him my podcast subscription list (powered by Pocket Casts running on Android) alone, why not share the wealth? So I’ll go ahead and share it with the whole world here on my blog: DJ Chuang’s export.opml (12/16/13).

I’ll get around to putting in the names of the podcasts later; scroll below for the raw output of the OPML converted into HTML. (Sure would save me a ton of time if there was a better OMPL to HTML converter out there; help?!) [did find this widget to make the list browse-able]

Too often I’m finding podcasts that only have an iTunes feed, and neglecting the significant numbers of people using Android and non-iOS devices and/or don’t have iTunes installed on the desktop (and don’t want to).

podcastsHey podcasters, please post both the iTunes feed and the RSS feed for all your listeners; maximize your listening audience size and increase it by 24.9%!

Yet all is not lost! Underneath every iTunes podcast feed link is embedded a simple RSS feed! There are 3 ways to get at that: : iTunes Podcast URL Extractor Feed FlipperFree iTunes Podcast to RSS Converter

And, here’s a bookmarklet you can copy-and-paste into your browser’s bookmarks toolbar, courtesy of djm – Bookmarklet: Convert iTunes Store Podcast URL into actual feed URL ::

By the numbers. Around the world, smartphone sales are heavily skewed to Android over iOS–sales in Q4 2012 were 70.1% Android vs. 21% iOS; on the flip side, mobile browser usage statistics: 60.1% iOS vs. 24.9% Android (NetMarketShare March 2013).

p.p.s. If you want to do it the long way, here’s instructions from Dave Taylor: How do I figure out my iTunes Podcast URL?

Recently I’ve been looking for podcasts to subscribe to for my commute time. I’m most interested in the intersection of social and spiritual things, aka people & relationships, which isn’t as popular as topics like technology or cooking or celebrity gossip.

In the Christian podcasting world, most podcasts are sermons or teachings or devotionals or church tech; that’s okay for the masses. I’m looking to check the “other” box, not so much what books tag as “Christian life”; just Christians (and Christian-friendly people) talking about a faith-informed life.

Here’s a list of active podcasts I’ve found so far — if you know others, please do let me know:

Aside: the term “podcast” has been co-opted for audio files posted on a website. Podcasts I’m listing here are those that can be subscribed via iTunes or a podcatcher app (cf. Google Listen or Podkicker on Android), and are recorded & produced only for the podcast show, not recordings from other broadcast media. This list isn’t for dormant podcasts (cf. The Nick & Josh Podcast, Wired Parish), only those that are actively updated, like weekly.

DJ Chuang Ed Choy In this episode of the Multi-Asian Church Podcast Series, Ed Choy and I talk about developing Asian American leaders in the context of an multi-Asian/multi-ethnic churches. You’ll need to listen more carefully, since the background noise at this episode’s Starbucks (in Dallas) was louder than last week’s Starbucks location (in Newport Beach).

Yes there’s more to be said about the importance of vision. DJ Chuang Ed Choy In episode 3 of the Multi-Asian Church Podcast Series, Ed Choy and I dig deeper into how to communicate compelling vision in multi-Asian/multi-ethnic churches. While the gifts of a strong communicator is valuable, it isn’t the magic bullet in getting vision to stick. We discuss several other factors in developing vision, developing leaders, and developing the church. And I even mention a couple of specific examples, venturing into dangerous territory there because that can open up more room for misunderstanding, as if we haven’t done that already.

Continuing the conversation with Ed Choy Ed Choy DJ Chuang about multi-Asian/multi-ethnic churches. (For the record, Ed is 1/4 Chinese.) The topic is on communicating vision. Of course vision is important. Without vision people perish. But how does vision play into developing Asian American leaders for a multi-Asian/multi-ethnic church? How does vision need to be communicated? It did take us a while for the conversation to warm up on this podcast — skip right to 9:44 if you want to get right to the meat, er, heat.
