You may have noticed an unexplained sidebar on Freaky Trigger – the “Podcast Panel”. A brief explanation is in order:

The Poptimism Podcasts are changing format, and the new idea is that every day, members of the Poptimists community on LiveJournal will vote on an MP3 – the highest-ranked forming the spine of new Podcasts. The most recent MP3 posted, though, will be streamable for a day on Freaky Trigger – hence the sidebar on the right. Currently that MP3 is an old Trina track, but it will change on a regular basis. Readers of FT have no obligation to vote, or have anything to do with LiveJournal – they can just enjoy the music!
