One of the many things on my lists of "LJs great big failures" was not turning the voicepost mechanism into a decent podcasting setup very early on. It's still difficult to find a decent podcast host today, despite audio files being much easier to deal with than image files.

Jennie podcasts a bit, I keep planning on starting, but the hassle of finding a host and/or coding every update, just puts me off.

A decent multimedia platform that's able to aggregate and host a vast variety of different stuff, with tags &c for optin/out, would be a useful little niche to fill.

I didn't tick "DW hosted videos" although I think it would fit, for the simple reasons other sites do that well and normally allow embed, but if the decision is made to go multimedia ignoring vids would probably not work.

But I definitely want to be able to host podcast style audio files, preferably with a little auto player similar to LJs voicepost player.
