MTNmeister is a podcast “exploring the minds of those who explore”. It consists of bi-weekly interviews with outdoors professionals, and required a web presence to highlight each of the podcast guests. Reconciling the natures of long form audio with the quick consumption of web-based content was a challenge, and our solution took the form of a custom WordPress site with “Meister profile pages” and the ability to connect recommended gear and other episode content with each guest.
I developed the site using Timber, a Twig templating library for WordPress. The WordPress admin was heavily customized according to a content strategy I determined before beginning the site, and makes extensive use of Advanced Custom Fields. I took great care to separate content from presentation – it is very important for producers to not be bogged down by the display of their content, their focus should be on creating it.
