As I wrote about last week, we're taking this week off of the AP.net podcast because I'm out of town. We'll be back on our regular schedule next week. I figured this would be a good time to highlight some of my favorite episodes we've recorded so far. If you haven't given the podcast a try yet, maybe this week's a good week to catch up on a few episodes. As always, we're looking to hear from the listeners about new topic ideas, suggestions, and other questions you'd like for us to cover. Please leave those in the comments or Tweet at us with the #askAP hashtag. We've got a lot planned for the podcast over the rest of the year, thanks to everyone that listens.

My Top Five Favorite...

Apple and Beats are pushing ahead with a streaming service that would aim to take on the likes of Spotify and Rdio. Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails is said to be playing a major role in the new venture.
The new music app, which is a collaborative effort between Mr. Reznor and other Apple and Beats employees, including Jimmy Iovine — who founded Beats with the hip-hop star Dr. Dre — will feature the streaming music service with many of the same characteristics as the Beats Music streaming service, one Apple employee said. Those may include curated playlists and a more vivid visual appeal, while conforming to Apple’s sleek and minimal design aesthetic, one person said. The name Beats...

Square has launched a new feature as part of their Cash app called "$Cashtags." The basic idea is that you can register a tag (kind of like a username) and then anyone can send you cash directly to that tag. The blog post announcing this feature talks about how the company envisions this being a great way for artists to collect money, tips, and things like that. Bands, labels, and artists may want to register their names if you think you're ever going to use the service. And, if you'd like to send me some money to go buy beer and fast-food, you can do that at $chorus.
We think $Cashtags are a fantastic marketing service that lets your customers, donors, fans, or even friends pay you...

Spitalfield's Stop Doing Bad Things turned ten on March 22nd. I have a weird feeling that this album would be (more) successful if it were released brand new today.

A recent Radiolab podcast did an episode about how the punk rock movement in Cuba impacted the country.
How a group of 80’s Cuban misfits found rock-and-roll and created a revolution within a revolution, going into exile without ever leaving home. In a collaboration with Radio Ambulante, reporter Luis Trelles bring us the story of how punk rock’s arrival in Cuba allowed a small band of outsiders to sentence themselves to death and set themselves free.
