Moves and hires

The Tech Stuff - with RSS․com

  • With Apple no longer requiring email addresses in RSS feeds, many podcast hosting companies have removed them for enhanced privacy - but that comes with added complication for claiming podcasts on other services - leading to increased support tickets and frustrated podcasters. This is a priority to fix for the next podcast namespace work, and podcast hosting companies should take part in the discussion.

  • Amazon Cloudfront saw its lowest market share in podcast delivery for over a year. Squarespace switched their traffic from Akamai to Fastly. Highwinds was the highest climber: it’s used by Spotify’s Megaphone and by Captivate, among others.

  • Cash app is working on payment via Lightning. “ Team ran a hackathon on LNURL and it’s in active dev,” said Cash app’s Rocky Medure. That would allow the app, which is one of the largest mobile payment services in the US and UK, to be part of podcasting’s 'value4value’ service.
