Out of Obscurity Music Podcast Content Guidelist

The official Podbean site and subreddit for OoO don't seem to have an easy or obvious way to list everything that's ever been posted on OoO, so my solution is to get personal here. Hosting w/ Podbean will be up for renewal in Oct. 2021, and I hope the price won't be higher to commit to another year. If you have any suggestions for growing our audience (other than improving sound quality and production level...these are known issues), please contact DJ Poseur at omniscientfool@yahoo.com Similarly, this page will someday label episodes by the genre of music involved, try to recruit cohosts, and brainstorm topics for "scheduled digression" episodes. If you think this page needs something else, tell me.

GUIDE TO COHOSTS & THEIR ALIASES: Episodes are named according to their cohost. Ced (C); Dean (E); DuballA (A); idiotprogrammer (Robert Nagle) (I); Optimus Grimes (OG); DJ Keep Roomie & sometimes DJ Karev (EKR); Loveheart (LH); Chiara (& sometimes Xiao Liu); HannahBackward (HhB); Episodes with DJ Poseur and no cohost or second album pick are labeled (ESolo)

ABBREV. KEY: AE = Asian Edition (may or may not be a standard episode format...if not, will be labeled as SDAE); SD = Scheduled Digression (an episode-length discussion with guests in a format other than a standard episode); Official episode titles begin with E; The Obscurity Quiz name should contain the name of the contestant and maybe the theme of the quiz
