The World's Patrick Cox continues our series on global obesity with a report from Singapore. Authorities there tried to combat obesity by putting overweight kids into special clubs and forcing them to exercise and diet. It did reverse the trend, but it also made many kids in Singapore miserable.

As a measure against the use of new Internet technologies during hustings in Singapore, Channel NewsAsia reported from a Parliamentary hearing on Monday that “Podcasting is not allowed during elections“. Here's a 5-point breakdown of what this means, including: 1. Who podcasts political content in Singapore? 2. On the Ban Wagon: Websites, Blogs, and Podcasts 3. How far do these content regulations go? 4. SG government discourages anonymity? 5. What's with that CNA photo of web surfers at an Internet cafe in China?
Recommended by kevin: "I'm tomorrow-ing myself since this might be important to all local bloggers and podcasters. Accordingly to the Parliamentary Elections Act, it's surprisingly easy to get prosecuted for particular content on web sites, blogs and podcasts. "

This episode of the show contains christian content, and features me singing christian songs. If you do not like such material, don't listen.

There you go... the mainstream media in sunny island Singapore has actually caught the podcasting fever and has started a podcast. Unlike the SDP one, this is an actual podcast complete with RSS feed.
Let's see if Straits Times will make this a long term feature or just a one-off affair.

My suggestion for podcasters is to simply go for a much cheaper but reliable mic, like the legendary shure sm58, a better sound card, a good pair of headphones and a reasonably good sound editing programme like protools with the standard plug-ins.
a nice howto on getting a good sound quality on ya podcasts

Apple Singapore's podcasting page fails to mention local podcasts. At all.
So, we decided to right a terrible wrong and come up with our own version. This is how it should have been.
I wonder if Apple will react to this. But it does raise the question as to why they don't mention anything about local podcasts on their site. Even in their stores, they advertise the Gilmore Gang and Adam Curry and all, but there's no sight of a single local podcast.

podeejay supports our own local music talent! Thus all the artistes/bands featured on our podcasts are homegrown. They're looking out for presenters and bands.
Podeejay is run by a bunch of youths, discontented with the amount of radio airplay local music is getting and intent on revitalising…wait…revolutionising broadcast in Singapore.
Attention local artistes/bands! Want to be played on our podcasts? After all, its an added avenue for you to be heard. Drop us a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org!

Hong Kong Phooey, number one super guy. Hong Kong Phooey, quicker than the human eye. He's got style, a groovy style, and a car that just won't stop. When the going gets tough, he's really rough, with a Hong Kong Phooey chop (Hi-Ya!).
Pilot and Jo are back from the dead!! It's not quite the "ALL-NEW PILOT N' JO" that Jo promised but hell! I'm so excited my groins are tingling!
Of all the FOUR Singaporean podcasters, they're the funniest (yes, even funnier than mr brown *prepares to be mauled*). Yes, my friends. My life has meaning again.

ahmad overheard in the blogosphere that:
Finally Singapore bloggers have a chance to hear the voice behind Singabloodypore - Steven McDermott is interviewed by Radio Open Source on their second pilot show featuring Global Voices. He's Irish all right, confirmed.
According to their website, Global Voices "is an international effort to diversify the conversation taking place online by involving speakers from around the world, and developing tools, institutions and relationships to help make these voices heard."

So, two groups of Singaporeans, the older generation with their stories of old Singapore, and a younger generation who have left our shores, either permanently or temporarily, to be somewhere else. Both groups with stories I want to hear... An oral history of Singapore, if you will. Told by ordinary Singaporeans... Now if that isn't an idea screaming to be done as a podcast, I don't know what is.
Just a few days ago, I was dreaming of setting up a campus wide pirate radio station that would pump out unlimited content from the world of podcasts. This is in hope there would finally be better things on radio to listen to. Alas I didn’t blog about it soon enough, so the men in black came forth with the same innovation…
