Fans at U2source.com start U2 podcast

U2Source.com has created a U2 related podcast called the ‘U2 Chatcast’.

In these podcasts (what is a podcast?) you can listen to discussions between some well known and opinionated U2 fans. The first U2 Chatcast has just been made available and it features Matt from atu2.com, Michael from michaelvox.com and u2source.com’s own Dan Eliot.

To subscribe to the show and listen to it on your mp3 player, add the rss feed below to your favourite podcasting client:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/U2chatcastDIR

Or just go to the show’s page to download the mp3.

‘Podcasting’ is making audio files (most commonly in MP3 format) available online in a way that allows software to automatically download the files for listening at the user’s convenience.

  • Not very goog. And guy’s Bono’s lyrics weren’t stolen, he left them behind accidentally in the Fog Horn. The Oregonian in Portland did a huge story on this after Bono got the bag back last fall. And you call yourselves podcast-worthy fans?

  • Just listened to it. I see I got a mention: ‘Caroline would know’. Guys, the answer to the question is ‘No.’

  • Caroline:
    See, I knew you would know :-)

    PDXJoe: I don’t think it’s ever been clear as to whether Bono lost the lyrics or if they were stolen. I certainly don’t think Bono “lost them” in the attic of a house… which is where they were eventually found. What is certain is that whoever had them made no effort to get them to Bono. It took the new owners of the house (and this website) to get them back to him.

  • I’m not sure I see a large difference between something being stolen and being left behind and not being there when you go back to pick it up. Could just be me though. And it isn’t like newspapers always get all the details precisely right, reporters are human beings with deadlines.

    About being ‘goog’ enough for a podcast – I’m not sure how semantic trivia would qualify or disqualify anyone from putting an mp3 in a rss feed.

  • Dan. Um, if you read the story, you would see there was indeed an effort to get the lyrics back to Bono and the band. The attic where they were found was once the house of the roadie who found the lyrics. This whole cop-out of, “Well, journalists have deadline and can’t be expected to get the details right,” is a classic case of blaming the messanger for reporting something other than the myths we have become comfortable believing. I know the reporter who wrote the story and it’s solid.

  • And we’re arguing about this why? To determine who the bestest fan is?

  • thanks for answering the gavin question caroline. i had a feeling the answer would be “no.”

  • I assume Caroline’s answer means she doesn’t know, instead of “No, Gavin isn’t on the paylist.”

    My assumption is that someone with the fancy status of ‘Consultant Poptician’, ‘Consultant Popmartician’ and ‘Flight Consultant’ (on Elevation) does pick up some kind of paycheck somewhere…

  • Roeli said: “I assume Caroline’s answer means she doesn’t know, instead of “No, Gavin isn’t on the paylist.”"

    Wrong assumption. There is no paycheck, there’s never been one anyway, and I don’t think that would have changed for this tour.
