The Tech Stuff - with RSS․com

Podping goes live

podping․cloud is now being used in production at PodcastIndex.

The service is a way to instantly inform podcast apps and directories that you have a new episode. By removing constant polling (Google and Overcast poll our RSS feed every four minutes) it saves electricity and bandwidth, too. This article talks more about how it works: it’s a distributed service using the Hive blockchain.

If this seems familiar: it is. WebSub works almost the same way; but it doesn’t work for every use-case out there, particularly standalone apps. However, from a podcast host point of view, it works identically: you just ping an address to say your feed has just updated.

Buzzsprout and RSS Podcasting are already feeding updates to Podping, as is Podnews for our podcast. Captivate will do so shortly. You can watch updates live on the Podping Watcher. It means that new episodes appear in the PodcastIndex roughly 40 seconds after they’ve been published.
