The Radiotopia Index: A Final Project in Organizing Information Class
Hello! The (5 min) youtube video (with speaker notes linked in the description) is an executive summary of my final project for a class called Organizing Information. The project was to design an index for a collection of existing work. I chose podcast episodes within the Radiotopia network. An index is an organized list of terms that link to all the items that have that term (like this on metafilter). Indexes (1) allow users to find all of the items connected by a term in one place and (2) describe items by considering their "aboutness" --- a concept that can be quite the rabbit hole!

There is a link to the the full policy paper and design pages in the description to the video.

I listened to an indexed dozens (hundreds?) of episodes in order to design my index. I also used "podcast" questions on askmetafilter to support my policy decisions.
