Very good point. I'd like to know why subscribers don't submit shows,
but it's unlikely that a "soft" episode about subscribing would be
downloaded by casual subscribers. I really can't believe people do not
know that HPR is a community show.

The outro http://hackerpublicradio.org/theme.php#outro covers that and
is included in every episode. Although perhaps a short snappy station
ident like the twit "Netcasts you love, from people you trust" at the
beginning might help.
