The PodcastIndex namespace defines the podcast:location tag which allows you to specify if a podcast or an episode is about a place. It is intended to describe the location of editorial focus for a podcast's content - i.e. "what place is this podcast about?".
Local podcasts are now here!
The place can be a monument, an address, a city, a region, a country, a mountain or a sea, a continent, another planet… or even be fictional!
The purpose of this feature is to make podcasts local and to allow geographic discovery. The podcast is localized, the user is not. The listener's location is never asked, nor stored, nor shared. Also note that the podcaster's location is usually irrelevant: only location of editorial focus matters.
