Lately I’ve been wondering if I should cross-post the podcast episodes on the YouTube channel. On the one hand, I think it would allow more people to come across the episodes. And I could put pictures of the things we talk about in at the appropriate moment. Or even move to recording video when I talk to the guests. So I think it would be a reasonable watching experience. I know that plenty of people use YouTube to host their podcasts (witness Hey and Stuff). The transcriptions and subtitles alone are a pretty compelling reason to do it.
On the other hand, I wonder whether it would dilute the channel or annoy people. People can always skip over things they don’t want to watch of course, and I’d make a playlist containing just the podcast episodes, but I still can’t shake the feeling that it might be off-putting somehow.
If you have any thoughts on the subject, drop me a comment here, on Twitter or at email@example.com. I could use some help figuring this out. Thanks!
