As soon as I get done writing this post I am going to remove Odeo from my website as a podcast directory destination. I am not alone in this as many other people have had nothing but problems with Odeo ever since it was sold.
It appears there is quite the soap opera developing, in that when Sonic Mountain acquired Odeo it looked like a new group was going to tackle maintaining the site. In recent days their apparently has been some turmoil at Sonic Mountain with Sonic Mountain President Rick Arturo being forced out, or as I hear shown the door by the Amergence Group that had made a strategic investment in Sonic Mountain. A little birdy has told me that this one will be decided by the lawyers.
Additionally I have heard that their was potentially two other companies looking to purchase ODEO from Evan Williams. I can only imagine what he has to think about the whole situation. The most damaging thing is the dirt that some podcasters dug up and posted at Podcasting News truly sad.
