Steve has not posted threads for new episodes for about a month, which is also the last time he was active on the forum.

So should we get some other people to make threads about each new episode? I think it fair to conclude that Steve has abdicated from that.

I'm too lazy to do it, but yes, it would be nice if somebody were to take on that chore. The Latinist did it a couple of times. But he's already doing volunteer work as an admin, so I would not ask him to take this on as well.

Only a moderator can start a thread in the podcast section.

There really needs to be a thread for each show up the day the podcast comes out. People usually have something to say as soon as they've listened to the show.

If none of the mods does it, I suppose we could start a 'Show Discussion' thread in the 'General Discussion' section and just use that each week.  ???

Definitely need one thread per episode, given how some of them end up with dozens of pages.

Can (select) users be given permission to start threads in Podcast Episodes without also having moderator privileges?

I'll be very grateful to whomever takes on this task. It is nice to have a new thread for each episode.

Side note: Thanks to the mods for their continued work to make this forum possible!
