PODcasting is finally here on AboveTopSecret.com
We're finally ready for members to PODcast!
PODcasting grew from a counter culture of disenfranchised radio aficionados frustrated with the heavy corporate atmosphere and poor quality of
broadcast radio. This is certainly a mind-set that is squarely in-line with how we think at ATS.
We are the first online community to make PODcasting available to our members in a fall-down easy process. Just ramble into a microphone, save it as
an MP3 file (2 megabyte maximum file size), and go to our PODcasts Page
directly to our feed. If you have more than 500 posts, your PODcast is automatically published, and you get 2500 ATS points. If you have fewer than
500 pots, your submission is review first.
Here are some simple rules:
1. You must introduce your self using your ATS member name, and identify your podcast as an "AboveTopSecret.com member podcast" within the first
30 seconds of your submission.
2. All normal terms & conditions apply, however, members submitting ATS podcasts that contain content that violates our terms and conditions will be
immediately banned. (BTS and PTS feeds are coming soon, and have will have a more relaxed editorial stance.)
3. You may use music as an intro, background, or closing tag. However, do not use copyrighted material for ATS podcast feeds (look into music loops or
royalty free music).
4. Artistic content such as your own "pod safe" music and spoken word poetry, will accepted for the BTS feed when it becomes live.
Having your PODcast accepted into the feed will earn you 2500 ATS points.
The first 10 members to submit at least 4 minutes of your own voice discussing ATS topics will receive a free ATS logo T-shirt.
More surprises coming soon.
(Please note that we reserve the right to use portions of your podcast for promotional blurbs about ATS and previews of ATS podcasts.)
