To back it up with some additional data, I’m also linking to my listening history of them on Last.fm, though I notice that my account isn’t catching as much material as it had previously because I spend a lot of time listening to music on my Amazon Alexa now, and that doesn’t log the hundreds of times I’ve surely listened to Rich Girl over the past several years. Of course some of my Last.fm scrobbles are aggregated under other versions of these songs as well since they separate originals and remasters from various albums and re-releases.
You should be able to click through to individual jams to hear the songs inline on my site.
I also can’t help but mention that when I didn’t renew my subscription to Spotify a while back, they sent me a playlist that wasn’t too dissimilar from this exercise:
Many people recommend podcasts to me, but I suspect that the majority of the time, they’re just parroting back what’s popular or they’ve heard about recently. Listening to podcasts is often work and takes some effort in investing one’s time. As a result, just knowing what podcasts people have actually listened to is very valuable. If it wasn’t good, interesting, or entertaining, they’d have switched the channel. If they listened and actively chose to share it, it must be even better.
If anyone is interesting in building and sharing their own faux-cast, I’m happy to help them do something similar on their own website.
Of course if you want the more “traditional” answer, there are lots of awesome podcasts about which I think, “Everyone should listen to this!” John Biewen’s Seeing White is one of my favorites.

I always knew that it was more valuable and powerful to have my own domain and post my content there. Sadly, like many, around 2006 I started taking the well-paved roads provided by social media companies like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, et al. But in 2010 a few people began a “desire path” of travelling back through a more open and free internet. They created a proverbial smeuse called the IndieWeb through which many have now passed and which, over the passage of time, is becoming larger, better worn, and even comfortably paved with sidewalks and custom lanes for bicycles and other modes of transportation in many places. Best of all, they’ve created a system which doesn’t require travelling down the roads of others, but provides a lot more freedom and self-determination. They’re slowly, but surely, making it easier for everyone to choose their own desire path on the internet.
I consciously re-started down my old desire path in 2014 and have found a variety of students, teachers, and even friends have not only benefited from it, but that it opens up the ability for them to pick and choose their own paths.
It’s an Ontario Extend tradition to offer up a Daily Extend Challenge for the month of June. Can you do one every day? This June is no different. Except for one difference. This year, we take the weekends off.
It’s the June Daily Extend Challenge, Weekdays Only Edition! Challenge one: accept or reject the challenge in GIF format. Check out Giphy or any GIF repository for a GIF that sums up your response to this challenge.
Will you go for the full 20 Daily Extends in June? You can do it! We believe in you. Watch for a new Daily every weekday in June! You are also free to do any past Dailies during June to count towards achieving this lofty goal.
Can you rise to the top of this list for Daily Extend activity (mOOC Edition)? Our current board reflects the June 2018 Challenge of doing at least 20 this month (weekends off for good extending).
