Some podcast related ponies.

I'm working backwards through the podcasts on my phone, and was wondering whether there could be a link to the podcast page at the bottom of the mobile site? Also, on the specific podcast page, could the podcast titles be links to the relevant metatalk thread?

Rather than creating work for pb, why don't you bookmark this page on your phone and use the [more inside] link to see the relevant MeTa post?

Yeah the mobile site is definitely pb's domain and I know he likes to keep it as streamlined as possible. I feel like if the titles linked to the MeTa threads that might be setting people up for confusion since the [more inside] link already goes there.

Fair enough, thanks for the explanation.

My podcast pony is being included in one.

(Ok, I was once, long ago. But it's frustrating to be recognized for something you know to be less than your best work.)

My podcast pony is this:

QI format. Matt as the host, Cortex as the continual panelist (Alan Davies), and rounding out the first panel, It's Raining Florence Henderson, The Whelk, and Flapjax At Midnight.

I went ahead and made the post titles links. Anywhere else we have post titles on the front page (Music, IRL, Jobs) they're links to the post. So that was just an oversight.

I do think we're at the limit of what we can add to the mobile stylesheet menu without being ridiculous. We might be ridiculous already. (And we're working on some changes in this department.) So yeah I agree that this is a good candidate for a bookmark for now.

Thanks pb! I'll carry on with the podcast bookmarked on my phone.

You want to be included in a pony? I think your best bet is one of those two-piece horse costumes.

My god. I always thought MetaFilter was a relatively small company. You have a mobile stylesheet menu department?

I'll see your horse, and raise you a zebra.

Could you do a podcast exclusively about dubstep? TIA.

For tax reasons, it is legally only a dept.

In that they're adept at making mobile style sheet menus.
