Changing the Podcast Feed

August 7, 2006

One rule of blogging and podcasting is to never change your feed. I learned this too late. I will need to change the KidsWifeWorkLife feed sometime in the next month or two. I don’t want any of you to miss a show so here is what you will need to do to be ready for the change. First, If you subscribe through iTunes you don’t have to do anything, although it may not hurt unsubscribe and resubscribe if you have a moment.  If you subscribe some other way you should read on. My apologies for all the geeky feed talk. The correct feed for the show is:

You will need to set up your podcatcher, Juice, Yahoo, Odeo or whatever you use to subscribe to the above feed. The published feed among many of these podcatchers is not the Feedburner feed as listed above. If your podcatcher shows anything other than the above listed feed you will need to change it. I don’t know the specifics of all the different software, but if you want help send me email and I will do my best to help you figure it out.

If you are using Yahoo our show has somehow appeared twice in the Yahoo directory. One is the correct feed and one is the incorrect feed. I have tried to get them to delete the incorrect feed, but have not had any luck. If you are subscribed in Yahoo look at the podcast information page. If the feed shown is not the feedburner feed then you should unsubscribe and resubscribe to the other version in Yahoo. One last issue with Yahoo is that the shows seem to be about 2-3 weeks late appearing in the directory. The service is in beta and hopefully will improve, but until then I recommend subscribing another way if you can so you always have the latest show.

Thanks to all of you for sticking with us through the change. If you think you are missing a show you can always come here to find it.
