Have you ever wanted to put together a podcast of audio files that you’ve discovered on the web? It isn’t as easy as it should be. A podcast is an RSS file and making an RSS feed by hand is a pain.

Huffduffer takes the pain out of podcasting found sounds.

Huffduff it

Triangulate sources of transmission Huffduffing

The word Huffduffer derives from a technology called Huff-Duff that was used to triangulate the position of radio transmissions. Huffduffing on the web is a way of pin-pointing interesting MP3 files.

Here’s how it works:

  1. You find an MP3 that you’d like to share with the world.
  2. Use the handy Huffduff it bookmarklet or huffduff it directly on the site.
  3. That file is now added to your podcast.

Let me show you an example:

Tag it

Mark your targets Tagging

When you are huffduffing an audio file, you can “tag” it with key words or phrases. Separate tags with spaces or commas; whichever you prefer. Tagging files like this makes it easier to find related files that other people have huffduffed.

A separate podcast is created for every tag you use. For example:

Discover it

Locate more sources Discovery

Tags are also a useful way of finding interesting stuff that other people have huffduffed. For example:

If you want to drink from the firehose:

Pretty much every page on huffduffer.com has a corresponding podcast so you can subscribe to whichever ones interest you.
