Subscribing to Apple Podcasts

Post by maritn »

Hello,

is it possible to subscribe to podcasts from Apple Podcasts? I tried to add this to my subscriptions, but it's not downloading any episodes.

Hi,
It looks like something is wrong in the podcast not just on Apple podcasts but also on other sites, here is the same podcast from one other site and it works flawlessly

https://www.spreaker.com/show/2761736/episodes/feed

HINT: search for it on other sites and you should find it without problem. I used this for a search criteria "So Very Wrong About Games podcast rss"

Hi,
MM support Apple pcast:// links but Apple direct podcasts, but based on your link it looks that they changed "Subscribe" button to "Listen on Apple podcast" that require iTunes to be started and installed :(

RSS feed link is standard way to fetch any news feeds, podcasts, ... that updates regularly as they are platform and application independent.

I cannot get the above podcast link to work. MM adds the subscription, but nothing gets downloaded. Could someone check on their end to see if it works? I'm not sure what is going on, but I do have issues with podcasts on Apple's site.

Update: I found an RSS link somewhere else that works! I am so glad, because this podcast is tremendous.
