Podcast Basics: RSS Feed
Updated: Sep 10, 2019
What's an RSS feed? When first entering the realm of podcasts, that's a fair question. Here's a very simple breakdown of how RSS feeds function specifically within podcasting.
What is an RSS Feed: An RSS feed allows podcast apps to update available content in a standardized format (i.e. the "Available Episodes" section of the Apple Podcast App).
How an RSS Feed works in function:
1. A podcaster uploads an episode onto their RSS feed
2. The RSS feed then updates across all podcast apps
3. The episode shows up on their listener's app ready for listening
