The list of things to do will evolve over time and I will post updates here.

For now, we are looking for people who are interested in helping promote the Empire (e.g. put links at Appropedia).

We are also looking for Pod People to help with the summaries (writing, reviewing, etc). We need redundancy so if someone in the current team cannot do the job due to other priorities, someone else can take over.

Contact me through private messages or through this thread if you are interested.

I can help with pods. I'm starting to listen to them all. Itl be slow going due to business but I'm down for transcribing, summarizing and reviewing. What we really need is one person in charge of the current list (ie spreadsheet format maybe) that all pod permie roadies have access to. And all pod permie roadies (PPRs) send all files to that person so it can be updated easily and any PPRs can then choose something else not done.
Maybe this person and organization already exists but if not or they could be doing other things then I would be happy to take it on. This would suit me better and easier than just the pod stuff alone. Also redundancies could be listed as well.
Let me know what you think.

"YEAH" = complete. "---------#" = number of PPRs on it.
":...............:" = jump on it
Pod#...:...Transcribe...:...Summary...:....Review....: (notes)
.....1.....:----YEAH.------:--------1------:...................:
.....2.....:------2---------:......................:---YEAH-----:
.....3.....:.......................:......................:....................:
.....4.....:.......................:-----YEAH-----:....................:

Thinking something like this. I could make entire list and start a thread "Podcast Conversions"
Anybody that wants to be a PodPermieRoadie can jump in. Names could be listed instead of dashes. I think with the blanks it will be easy to see what isn't done. Also I can get the ok that something is finished and the files are going to someone else to deal with or the files can come to me to mark off and check content and then be sent off to who or whereever. Also would I just need to go through podcasts to see which ones have summaries and such or is there a list somewhere. Anyway, get back with me if I can help with this and we can figure out the easiest way to get going.

I would like to make a simple suggestion for the volunteers creating the podcast summaries. It could help busy people enjoy them much more.

Most of the podcasts touch on many topics and some are quite long. A listener with limited time may see a subject of particular interest mentioned in the summary and wish to fast forward directly to the point in the podcast where it is discussed. If the summaries showed the time in the podcast where a topic is mentioned, it would help these focused types "cut to the chase". I think it would be a great time-saver for those people who just don't have enough hours in the day to take in the whole podcast.
 
And then we all jump out and yell "surprise! we got you this tiny ad!"
