We’re getting a few reports of trouble downloading shows. We just audited our RSS feeds and aggregator. We found a couple of issues we’re working on.
- The “Fat Pipe” feed is only displaying the Weekly Shows. We know the problem is with our RSS aggregator. No ETA to a fix yet. Their tech support is pretty much this.
- The “Network Break” feed is https when it should be http. You might get a certificate error because of this, depending on how observant your podcatcher is. Working on it.
Our feeds are really important, so we want to be sure we’ve got this sorted out. If your Packet Pushers feed (or feeds) stopped updating and you can’t wake them back up, e-mail [email protected] with the following info.
Subject line: Busted Feed
Feed: (Weekly Show, Fat Pipe, Datanauts, etc.)
Feed URL: In iTunes, right-click a show, and select “Copy Podcast URL”. If you’re using something else, we hope you can sort out that detail.
Your platform: Android Lollipop 5.1.1, iOS 9.3.2, Windows 10, Linux, OS X 10.11.5, etc.
Your podcast software: iTunes, Stitcher, etc.
We’re trying to find the signal through the noise, and this should help us. We are very seriously considering a move to a new RSS aggregator, but this is tricky when most of you are downloading shows just fine. So we must be certain we’re making the right move to risk the disruption.
