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.
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:
- You find an MP3 that you’d like to share with the world.
- Use the handy Huffduff it bookmarklet or huffduff it directly on the site.
- That file is now added to your podcast.
Let me show you an example:
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:
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.
