For any live stream(Episode) to continue to qualify to be published on the Foundation's public forums:
Attendees: At least two members of the Foundation participated in a podcast.
A peer-reviewed podcast!
Open podcast episodes are peer-reviewed. A peer's presentation is reviewed by another peer.
Open Podcast is not the megaphone for individual member's activism.
It is the "Voice" of the community. Therefore, a peer's ideas shall be reviewed by another peer.
2. Moderators: Moderators and interviewers play an important role in channeling an open conversation. They can bring fluidity and empathy.
One member participates in the podcast to moderate the conversation. A moderator helps panelists modulate their discussion into something civil, humane, and meaningful for our community. There is nothing holding back the member moderating the talk, in expressing their ideas on the subject.
Most importantly, Moderators should have moderated the livestreams in accordance with the Moderation Policy.
c. Observer: An observer member participates in the podcast episode for the stream to qualify as an open podcast. The Observer member may or may not participate as one of the panelist speakers.
The observer member generally observes if the podcast stream is within the Foundation's guiding principles. Members from different Open Council Committees can generally volunteer to be Observers of an open podcast.
So at least four members come together to host an open podcast. More members may join as panelists depending on the subject, style, theme, and nature of the episode.
Platforms where Open Podcasts are hosted:
Moderators should use the Foundation's recognized communications systems for the advocacy of the Foundation's research and objectives in a responsible manner.
Live Streams are broadcast autonomously on different forums of the Internet. The Internet platforms currently used are: Youtube, Linkedin Live, Spotify
In addition to the above, speakers should have participated in the special community guidelines for hosting a successful podcast episode.
a. Members may present their views on subjects that comprise a core research focus of the Foundation.
b. All episodes are released in open source, where citizens share their experiential learning for the benefit of humanity, and to advocate Foundation's guiding principles.
