Hi All,

I am concerned as to the health of HPR, and I touched (went on a rant to
be honest) on this in the Community News show that will be released
tomorrow.

We have 16,495 subscribers and 260 slots per year, so we need to have
only 2.5% subscribers contributing to have a different host for every
day. Unfortunately only 62 managed to contribute a show in the last 365
days. I don't need Charles in NJ to tell me that that's only 0.38% of
our subscriber base.

As a project that is supposed to be a "Community Podcast", but we're
looking less like a bar camp and more like a TED talk.

It gets worse. Dave ran the query of how many shows were contributed by
each host over the last 365 days. It shows that 50% of the shows have
been contributed by just 5 hosts. This is not to say that submitting
multiple shows is bad, far from it. But it's the difference between
wanting to submit multiple shows and *needing* to submit multiple shows,
that I'm concerned about.

So a few questions for the list:

- - Is this a problem ?
- - If so, how do we fix it ?

*Please* do not derail this discussion about your intentions to record a
show. I have a in box full of "I plan to do a show about this" or "I'm
definitely doing a series on that". More than one are from myself.
Basically if it's not on the server, it's not a show.

You can always add a topic to the requested topic page.
