[Hpr] Scheduling the same host or series in one week

I've been wondering the same thing but for a different reason.

I've uploaded 4 interviews with X.org developers. One of the purposes is 
to get people thinking about X and how they can contribute to it.  It's 
a project that wants and needs new, young(?), dedicated and passionate 

With that in mind, to get and keep people thinking about a project, is 
it best to blitz the queue with a bunch of podcasts or string them out 
so there's occasional fresh info?  I think the best would be to do an 
initial blitz and then periodic ones after that.  But I only have 4 
interviews and I'm pretty sure I can't do a regular Xorg series; I just 
don't have enough time to do it properly.

I'm pretty sure this is something that's covered in marketing 101, but 
I'm not a marketing guy.
