The Tech Stuff - with RSS․com

%adtitle%Because every podcast needs an RSS feed, RSS․com helps thousands of new podcasters know how to start a podcast every month.
  • Twitter has launched crypto tipping using the lightning network: the same tool used by Podcasting 2.0 value4value apps. The tool uses the Strike API. It’s “rolling out” on iOS, but Strike itself - marketed as “money without borders” - is only available in the US and El Salvador.

  • Samsung has updated their RSS specifications. The specification, now at v2.0, includes a small list of supported categories: subcategories will not be used.

  • Podcast hosting company RSS․com is now supporting the podcast:funding tag. This tag lets podcasters add a link to support the show financially, which appears in apps like Podcast Addict, Podverse, PodcastGuru, PodLP and many more (and our podcast directory too).

  • Benjamin Bellamy spoke about the podcast:location tag at the Netherlands Podcast Festival 2021. Here are his slides, containing at least one Photoshop of Podnews’s Editor.

Tips and tricks

  • Here, from the UK broadcast regulator Ofcom, is research into swearwords - sorted into “mild”, “moderate”, and “strong” - and whether everyone knows what they mean. Caution: this list contains almost every swearword available. (This might be helpful, at the very least, to work out whether that podcast is deserving of the 'explicit’ tag - though if you’re reading this list to find out, the answer’s probably “yes”.)
