I started it because when I started podcasting six months ago I looked around for a forum but I couldn't find one. Or I should say I couldn't find one that I wanted to spend more than 20 seconds in. Aside from the font, it's default basic out of the box standard, so don't go there hoping to see an awesome design.
Why it's good:
- It's independent, not run by a podcast hosting company or Google or Microsoft or the Chinese government.
- There are very few rules, and I'm not even sure what those few rules are.
- The URL is easy to remember when you've had too much to drink and you don't want to buy more forum software licenses.
