The PodnewsBot

December 10, 2019 · By · 0.6 minutes to read

We use a bot to:

  1. Fetch RSS feeds, for our podcast pages and our players
  2. Fetch a podcast HTML homepage, for our podcast pages
  3. Fetch a sample audio file for technical analysis
  4. Call APIs or JSON feeds on public websites

We are hosted on an Amazon EC2 instance, in a Dublin facility. Our IP address isn’t guaranteed to remain static.

Our useragent is:

Mozilla/5.0 + PodnewsBot/1.0

We have a standard timeout of 5 seconds for connection, 10 seconds overall. We assume your service will respond in that time.

We cache quite heavily, with the aim of not making a unique data call any more often than once in seven days.

Please do get in touch - - if you have any concerns about your service and our bot.
