Subscribe to Our Podlater Feed of WordPress Podcasts

Podlater

Podlater is a new project of mine that lets you build your own personal podcast feed. I like to think of it as “Pocket for Podcasts.” Using a simple bookmarklet you can easily add an episode of a podcast you stumble upon while browsing the web and then listen to it later in your favorite podcast player.

One of the neater parts of Podlater is that you can use it to build and share curated lists of podcast episodes around a given topic. So I’ve naturally started working on a Podlater feed for WordPress developers.

I’ve started the feed with a few podcasts I’ve listened to recently that I really enjoyed. I’ll be adding more as I find them and they’ll automatically show up in your podcasts app as I do.

A common pattern at the end of these write ups would always be a strong recommendation to my future self that I needed to diversify my income away from clients into something more recurring like a software product.
