M-Pod update

M-Pod, the Malayalam podcast was temporarily down due to our old audio file host shutting down the service. It was a great experience with Podbazaar, our old host, and it is sad to see them go. As we move on our mp3 files have been now moved to Internet Archive. So the website has been updated with the new audio files. Do check out the podcast.

Malayala Manorama, get well soon!

Malayala Manorama and Manorama Online continues to have their false claim (that Manorama Podcast is the first of its kind in Malayalam) in the Manorama Podcast page. Regardless of the emails that I and other Malayalam bloggers have sent to Manorama Online content editor Santhosh George Jacob, he and his team at Manorama Online fails to understand what a podcast is. They cling on to the same statement that their podcast is the first podcast in Malayalam which is completely wrong and cannot be proved. The funny thing is that they do not even follow the basic standards defined for a podcast (to offer subscription feeds) yet they claim their podcast is the first in Malayalam.

All I can do at this moment is to wish Mr. Santhosh George Jacob and his team at Manorama online, Get Well Soon!
