New York, NY (PRWEB) October 24, 2005
AboveTopSecret.com takes another step deep into online culture with the official launch of its community podcasting service. The leading online destination devoted to "alternative topics" in world affairs, politics, conspiracies, environment, and speculative issues, AboveTopSecret.com provides ten different podcast feeds, free of charge, to its members. The feeds carry over 600 individual podcasts with an average of 60 new programs each week with topics such as H5N1 avian flu, UFOs, FEMA, terrorism, political conspiracies, and even some hilarious stories.
Podcasting, the process of creating audio content available in subscription-based "feeds" through programs like Apple's iTunes, is a new Internet technology that is quickly gaining wild popularity. The vast majority of professional and amateur podcasts available for subscription are regularly scheduled programs produced by either an individual, or a small team. The community podcasting concept on AboveTopSecret.com takes a completely different collaborative approach that is synergistic with the vast discussion board community of nearly 50,000 registered members.
Community podcasting on AboveTopSecret.com opens the technological doors to any member with a computer, a microphone, and an idea. Once a member has completed their podcast episode, a simple upload process adds their MP3 file to one of the ten podcast feeds. No other online podcasting service makes it as simple to immediately be involved in a high-profile feed with over 4,000 subscribers.
Adding to this core service is a revolutionary adaption of podcasting: PODthreads -- collaborative podcast discussions and debates from multiple podcasters on a single topic, organized into a dedicated podcast feed. This astounding new use of podcasting technology enables members to add their thoughts and ideas, often greatly expanding on the topic, by replying to a podcast with their podcast. There are currently over sixty PODthread feeds with topics ranging from conspiracies in the war on terrorism, commentary on the government's response to Katrina, strategies for dealing with H5N1, spirituality, and more.
AboveTopSecret.com was founded by Simon Gray of Swindon, UK in 1998. Over the past four years with increasing international uncertainty and conspiracy-theory styled speculation appearing in mainstream media, it has grown to become the Internet's number one destination for these compelling topics. With a strong focus on quality management, AboveTopSecret.com is renowned for its host of intelligent participants and over 40,000 daily visitors. The engaging topics have included participation from NASA mission managers, USGS scientists, leading physicists, and even presidential candidates. With over 1.7 million posts on over 170,000 topics, anyone is certain to find something to hold their interest.
