Not strictly a podcast, but an idea wherein we can make audio commentary around certain blog posts. With a structure like:

  • Why did we write this?
  • Does this still stand the test of time?
  • Then dive into Questions about the content itself

This can happen at the same time as moving specific blog posts into the epic layout, for example:

  • db & orta on Artsy's Tech stack 2017
  • Ash and Alan on iOS retrospectives
  • Kana & Craig on Improving Page Speed with GraphQL
  • Alloy & Orta on Intro to React Native for an iOS Developer

As we can make the layout highlight these MP3 if they exist inside the layout, and they can be collated into an RSS feed for people to listen to on their podcast-y clients. I've already wrote one podcast server, so making it work in Jekyll can't be too hard.

A tonne of engineers have already run podcasts, so we have a tonne of knowledge of what we need in-house already.

Also we have the pod5 source code: https://github.com/pod5/pod5.github.io

That's a Jekyll blog that does it 👍

Also JWT one would be a good example since we learned few things along the path and we could revisit few things mentioned in that post.

Our Engineering compensation framework would fit well in this too 👍

Threw a bit of design time at it

Inline messaging:

And separately, a kind of "switch to behind the scenes" style theme, if we think we want to have a paragraph or two of writing on the commentary .

Took another stab, I dug a bit more into the player, and explored the idea of treating the entire podcast pages as a conceptual overlay. So the blog post text stays around, but low opacity, and eventually faded into black

Transition would be:

  • Name changes to podcast name
  • BG transitions to dark gradient
  • Name / author changes colour to bright
  • Body text for post darkens, podcast description comes in at the same place as body text but light
