OpenPodcast.org was a dynamically generated podcast to which anyone at all can contribute. It expects "short" segments (under 5 minutes is suggested) which will be included in the feed as they are received. Think of it as an audio wiki or time-shifted unmoderated call-in show. It ran from October 2004 to June 2006.
Our only guidance as to content:

How do I listen?

How do I contribute?
Sorry, contributing is no longer enabled.
The system provides two means of input from the public.
- Email your segment as an attached wav or mp3 file (mp3 is preferred if possible) to submit@<thisdomain>.org (be sure to replace "<thisdomain>" with "openpodcast"). When submitting an mp3, you may include title, author, and comment ID3 tags. These will be preserved when the file is distributed through OpenPodcast.org.
- Call (206) 350-OPEN (sorry, no toll-free number yet) and record your segment
Within 5 minutes of submitting your segment it will be included in the feed.
Who's behind this?
OpenPodcast.org is the concept of Ben Tucker. It was launched Oct 16, 2004. I'd love comments and suggestions about the idea. Add a segment to the Podcast or drop me a line at ben <AT> btucker.net
- Implement folksonomy tag system with custom feeds.
