    Metatag
    Previously discussed in episodes: 70 as MOTW (8y ago!) and mentioned in 31, 46, 137. And 185
    Brief description: Allows your Drupal site to provide meta tags on content to implement SEO best practices and maximize online findability
    Brief history
    How old: created in 2009 Versions available: Supported versions for Drupal 7, 9, and 10 Current version released Sep 29, 2022
    Usage stats: 381,821
    Maintainer(s): Dave Reid and DamienMcKenna
    - renowned Drupal contributors
    Module features and usage
    Allows content editors to populate common (and uncommon) meta tags either manually for each piece of content, or to have them filled out programmatically using tokens
    A wide variety of submodules to address different use cases where meta tags are helpful: social sharing, verifying site ownership (e.g. for Google Search Console), and more
    For any site that considers SEO a priority (which is probably most public-facing sites), setting Metatag should really be one of the first things
    Discussion: Given how widely used this module is, does anyone have specific experience with Metatag to talk about?

Thanks for doing this!

Practical and useful information

This podcast is a lot like the original Lullabot podcast from way back when that gave really practical and useful information. Was a pleasure to meet all the TD folks at NEWDCamp, reconnect with Jason and meet his wife Ellen. I have been working with Drupal since 4.7 and NEWDCamp got me re-charged about it.

The Best Drupal Podcast

I’ve been meaning to write this review for a while. Talking Drupal is the best podcast I have found on the subject of Drupal. The multiple hosts superbly cover the week’s topic from a variety of angles, in a manner that all can relate to. Whether you are a Drupal user, or a Site Builder, or a Developer, everyone will find something of interest to help them on their Drupal journey.

I tuned in around episode 50, and podcasts come weekly, and are of a consistently good audio quality. I have even started journeying back into the archives to explore relevant subjects from the past.
