@johnjohnston Thanks! Let me know if the posts gets so frequent that they feel like noise. I don't want to fill my micro.blog timeline with unnecessary stuff.

@MrHenko It's interesting to see someone else tracking what they're listening to. I try to include the .mp3 or other audio files in my post with proper markup to create a faux-cast of sorts that others can subscribe to. Somewhat like reading.am, I find that discovery of podcasts by seeing what others are actually listenging to is far more valuable than what they simply say they're listening to.

I'm hoping that podcast apps like Overcast by @marco might support technology like webmention and micropub in the future to make some of this stuff a bit easier as well as more valuable.

@c Thanks for your reply Chris! The way you are doing the tracking has been one of the main inspirations for me. I will probably also follow your example and create a "faux-cast", but I just want to make sure everything else around the tracking works first.

Also, I'm glad you've approach @marco about this. Have you gotten any response?

@MrHenko @c If only more podcasts would make it easier to share via Huffduffer, that would become my de facto faux-cast.

@jeremycherfas Yes, that would be a good solution.

@MrHenko @c In fact an extension to the Overcast share sheet, or maybe even a workflow, would be a useful thing.

@jeremycherfas Indeed, a workflow in the workflow app is what I'm using to manually do this after completing an episode.

@MrHenko I'm not sure he's seen it, but it's there for he or others to take advantage of if they wish. We'll see what comes of it. In the erstwhile, like @jeremycherfas, I'm relying heavily on Huffduffer.

@c Seems like a good idea. I'm tweaking my Workflow workflow (or my Shortcuts shortcut?) and that also seems to be a fairly simple solution.

The upside of having something that requires user interaction is that, at least to me, it also encoruages adding some comments as well. I think it has made me pay more attention to what I listen to, at least for the 30 hours or so that I've had it working. :)
