That’s What Happened
is a multi-media network dedicated to decentralized hosting and ensuring that content creators who seek to deliver true media, productive entertainment, and important information are safe from censorship. Taking inspiration from the continuation of the anti-war movement in the 90’s to the mass online de-platforming from 2017-2021, we became tired of jumping from platform to platform and
set out to create an ANSWER instead of an ALTERNATIVE.
We have successfully implemented alternatives to all big tech video hosting, live streaming, podcast hosting, micro-blogging, video chats, chatrooms, and cloud options. We are putting the power and data back in the people’s hands, and not another walled garden. Want to learn more about our tech? Find us in the forum!
We go out of our way to make sure that each aspect of our site (software, hosting, etc.) is free from the stranglehold of big tech, and believe it is better to be a collective of like minded builders than each show having their own website. This serves as a more affordable option for the vast majority of people, along with built in networking opportunities. For this reason we are open to meeting with other podcasts, shows, and streamers and offer our support. While it still makes sense to be on “major platforms”, providing your audience with FOSS options shows them you value transparency, their privacy, and are ahead of the times!
For audio only shows (podcasts), we gladly host for free since the file size is much smaller than videos.
Live Online Radio
Our software allows us to put prerecorded podcasts on a 24/7 scheduled feed, we also have the option to air shows live. We hope to begin this in Fall/Winter 2022. If interested, please join the Hosting Request room in the forum or email email@example.com.
