What if you need to move your podcast RSS feed? I tell you how I accomplished this with one of the feeds we have at my work via a special RSS tag (see the links section below for the code).
Also discussed is the number of episodes you’ll see listed on your iTunes page. The answer is up to 300. If you have more than 300 episodes, congrats and don’t fret, all your episodes will be available to everyone once they subscribe.
Finally, I discuss the decision to include html tags in your RSS feed’s description tag. Some apps don’t display these tags and if they do they’re not clickable. However, more and more apps are starting to accept and honor code and links which could be a new way to get your audience to interact with your podcast.I recorded this episode slightly different. I used the ATR2100 directly into the computer via USB and recorded into audio editing software. The results sound fantastic and it goes to show you don’t need a lot of money to produce an awesome sounding show.
