[Hpr] 25 Days since anyone uploaded a show

Hi All,

Earlier this year we had a big push to get shows and the queue was
never as healthy. Unfortunately that has the effect of taking the
pressure off and so we now have had a period of 25 days since the last
show was uploaded. There are still 13 days until we start to have real
problems but I want to avoid a all out call for "HPR needs shows now".

Those types of campaigns are useful in getting in shows to keep the
network going in the short term, and in promoting HPR. But in the end
they cause as much harm as they do good. Once the immediate need for
shows is met, the flood that follows fills up the queue so much that
everyone walks away thinking "well that's fixed". Time marches on and
then we have no submissions and a month later we need to start begging
again.

I would like to have suggestions on how to break this boom to bust
cycle of show submissions. We need to see a steady trickle of shows
where there is equilibrium between the supply and demand. Those with
an insight into the theory of the problem are encouraged to submit a
show on the topic.

I need the people on this list to start recording some shows for
uploading in the next week or two to meet the immediate need. However
please do not put out a call for shows. What we need is a call for new
hosts and/or new series, and/or new ideas for how we can get a nice
steady stream so that supply meets demand.
