What is the goal of the list? Helping us find something new to listen to while driving, something new to watch on YouTube when we find ourselves idle? Finding people to contact about upcoming VCF events?
If the scope gets extended as far as things like reviews of early 1990s PC games, or TV/pinball repair, etc., then the list may become huge and possibly not usefully serving the intended purpose. If it's about marketing VCF events, then podcasts whose doors have (or have effectively) closed are not very helpful, and the list would require more update attention for it to avoid going out of date.
I suspect for better or worse, the number of entries on this list is going to be huge without (or maybe even with) some kind of statement of scope. Particularly if we're adding people's names too, as we seem to be doing, and some of these channels/podcasts involve several people each. It may be an interesting resource to have, but it'll be a project just to read the list.
I'm guessing this is just intended to be a list of "interesting things to check out, and people who have done interesting things in the past who might do something interesting in the future that isn't yet on the list" but it would be useful to have a kind of mission statement if the public is helping with updates and additions.
