Sorry, I know that question is difficult to follow.
The specific case I'm asking about would be about the history of the leadership (editting, hosting, and ownership) of the Escape Pod podcast. For those not familiar this is a long-running podcast that pays for and publishes audio versions of high-quality SF short stories by a wide variety of authors.
This has evolved many times over the over-a-decade run, and I've never been able to identify when changeovers occurred and why. Usually there is a little blurb within a podcast that mentions the change, but it's obviously not practical to go listen to the beginning and end of every podcast to determine the history.
An equivalent question might be something like:
What is the history of the leadership and ownership of DC Comics?
