Hi PA-software. I'm a new podcaster and am wondering about the information in the comment field of the main tag window, the description in the podcast tag window, and the lyrics field.

How do podcast directories use that information for each and should that information be kinda the same or completely different?

If I have written summaries for each episode, should we include all that text inside the tag, even if that info is posted on our website along with the audio file?

Thanks much. Jan

Basically, they are similar in that they all allow a large amount of text. The comments field is used in normal tracks for concise but extended information on the track and is displayed in most players.
The lyrics offers a place to enter the lyrics or transcript of a track but is
not usually shown by default, but when shown it is usually in a larger window than the comments.
The description for a podcast is only shown by players that support podcasts, it usually contains a long description of the podcast and is sometimes used instead of the comments. Most podcast players use the description over the comments.
