Get a Podcast Featured on Miro

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

listenAs many of you know, PRX is now featuring the best audio podcasts on the web in the Miro Guide. Having your podcast featured exposes it to an audience of savvy listeners eager to find awesome content, and is an all around great way to reach a new crowd.

Know of an amazing podcast? Share it with Emily from PRX: emily[at]prx.org.

Many of us know and love the excellent shows from NPR and other public radio mainstays, but Emily also wants to hear about the not so well known and spread the love. Think your podcast is an excellent companion to “This American Life”? Or maybe your music show is so hot listeners will never turn to Pandora again? Doing an oral history project in your community and think it could resonate with millions? Give it a shot and send a link to Emily. If she likes what she hears, you may see it featured. And don’t forget to give props to your favorite shows by sending them along, too. You’ll gain good-listening karma and we’ll all win.

PCF and PRX Team Up

PCF is pleased to announce that Public Radio Exchange has begun curating audio channels for the Miro Guide! Since we first started talking about having audio on the Miro Guide, we’re known we wanted to involve folks who really knew radio in adding and featuring content. Who better than PRX – based out of Cambridge, MA, their mission is “to create more opportunities for diverse programming of exceptional quality, interest, and importance to reach more listeners.” The Boston Globe calls PRX “a smart solution to the problem of excellent and innovative productions failing to reach wide audiences.”

We know that Miro Guide users are always on the lookout for new and interesting content, and we hope that this partnership with PRX will expand the choices available in the Miro Guide and, most importantly, help you get some great new content to listen to!

So say hello to PRX moderators Genevieve and Emily, and keep an eye out for the awesome podcasts they recommend in the “Moderator Pick” bar on our Audio page.

We’re hoping to build real subtitle support into Miro in the next couple months, but we need your help! So we’ve started a Kickstarter project to raise $1,000 to develop this feature for Miro on all three platforms: Windows, Mac, and Linux. Can you pledge to help make it happen? One of the great things about the Kickstarter model is that unless we can reach $1,000, your pledge won’t be charged.

See how we’re doing and make a pledge >>
