WikipediaWeekly

Wikipedia Weekly is the podcast that provides an informative dose of audio information regarding Wikipedia, the Wikimedia Foundation and our fellow projects for the community of wikimedians. Its off-wiki homepage is www.wikipediaweekly.org (this is done due to RSS limitations in MediaWiki).

As of March 2020, the podcast has been revived mostly as a streaming video community, organized on meta, at m:Wikipedia Weekly Network, with a variety of content from different language communities.

It's an irony, because we're all so unbelievably verbal and we write so much that we can't communicate with each other... So it becomes a challenge to find a way that we can streamline communication.

In fact I'm very excited about this podcast as one of those tools. If this podcast is entertaining and lots of people in the entire community, internationally and in many different projects listen to this, it gives us a central place to communicate news in an entertaining way. I think that's kind of cool."

— Jimmy Wales, Wikipedia Weekly episode 3

This is our get listener campaign. The best podcast in the world is useless unless people download and listen to it. The role of this subproject is to get listeners by promoting the hell out of it.

We're listed on iTunes and I've submitted to directories but we need publicity... badly.
