The Tech Stuff - with RSS․com

  • Castopod joins Spotify, Podchaser and Podnews in adding copious amounts of JSON_LD to podcast pages. Our schema includes RSS feed addresses, descriptions and the podcast:guid.

  • Neat thing - this podcast is putting their boost messages onto their website. (If you’ve an Umbrel running Helipad, http://umbrel.local:2112/boosts is a JSON feed that might help)

  • The launch of Libsyn5 last week also means a new, more private, RSS feed address for shows. Libsyn had used unique domain names for RSS feeds, which are never encrypted and bad for listener privacy. New feeds from Libsyn will come from feeds.libsyn.com - older feeds don’t yet 301-redirect, but we assume they will. (If all that’s tech-speak - don’t worry, you need do nothing).

  • Buzzsprout lost 28 podcasts from its platform last week, but Anchor also lost 28 shows according to our sample of podcasts. Anchor podcasts were (are still?) being produced in a non-compliant format, which makes them unplayable in some podcast apps
