how on earth does a story "reprint"

we used to get our kicks reading surfing MAGAzines (sic), Thursday, 31 May 2018 20:54 (one year ago) link

imo it’s a reasonable question for digital media when scarcity is artificial and there’s no real difference quantitatively between grabbing this week’s episode and one from two years ago

The only one in my subscription that routinely does that is This American Life, but that's because it coincides with the NPR broadcast for a given week and they rerun old episodes sometimes. Reply All has been known to do it every once in a while too, but I think it's because their format is so single-serving. I mean, it would be weird if Five Thirty Eight had reruns, but it doesn't seem strange for Reply All to?

whenever someone who's been on WTF dies, everybody on the internet gets mailed a coupon for a single free day of Stitcher Premium

I hear quite a lot of podcast reruns on TAL and Planet Money. Sometimes it takes me a while to realise I've heard them before; sometimes I'm happy to be reminded.

the episode number is always a clear indicator in the TAL feed, and sometimes their "re-runs" are 60% new and updated material anyway

Oh yeah, I mean I almost always know they're reruns – I sometimes just don't know for a while whether they're reruns of episodes I've heard before or not.

I think the idea is that most people who listen to podcasts subscribe to them? So even if you don't have a new episode ready for this week you can dump an old one on the feed and get a certain number of downloads to justify your ad rates.

That's true to an extent, though there are a surprising number of podcast listeners who do not download or subscribe - they just Google and press "play" on the first page they get to

lol i directed a not-very-online friend at this entire story (thread and radioshow) a while back -- assuming she wd be amused, as she once had been by a tale of a stalker who became high-profile enough that they too ended up with a stalker -- but instead she was just hugely appalled and said we should all be very ashamed of ourselves

if it’s any consolation to your friend, i’m rarely anything other than ashamed of myself

If the two women are still in the crew it'd be great if they recreated the picture now.

guys it’s been a hundred years and most images don’t load anymore. Is Wayne the guy on the bed with the two girls in the room, the Nintendo or whatever, etc? Maybe a red cap? Didn’t it turn out he died? Now he is skinny and alive? Do I have to read this whole thread again or will someone with better memory do me a solid and recap?
