Digg adds podcasts; buggy but not bad for a beta!

1 Comment

Motr_diggDigg was its own big "digg" story yesterday with a new design layout and new features in an effort for wider audience appeal. The new podcast feature is slightly buggy from a feed perspective, but does provide another method to stream podcasts for listening. We’ve got MobileTechRoundup in the list, so if you’ve got time for a quick digg, you can do so here. If you’re not a fan of the show, that’s fine; we’d only want "diggs" from folks that gain value from the show to help spread the word.

The streaming function works well, much like it does for using Google Reader. The main difference is that instead of just digging a podcast, you can digg or comment on individual episodes, which is great for new listeners; they can see which episodes were most liked by the audience! Our full feed details aren’t yet showing, so we’re missing our picture, but hey: it’s a beta and it’s good approach by the Kevin Rose and company. I’m already seeing quite a few highly dugg shows that I’m interested in, so I see the benefit already.
