The Jordan Harbinger Show has four analytics redirects: but how many redirects is too many? John Spurlock has worked up a test feed to see.

Pocket Casts has published a guide to moving from Google Podcasts, using an OPML feed. The company is offering a 50% discount for your first year of Pocket Casts Plus.
