The podcast feed for my podcast “The Overnightscape” has gotten really huge, so I decided to cut it down in size. Basically, back when iTunes started doing podcasting,it would play the OLDEST podcast in your feed as a sample, so I chose #186 because it was a decent show. And I never deleted any shows from the feed. So, by yesterday’s episode, #537, there were 352 shows in the feed, and the feed was over 370K in size! I’ve decided to only keep the last 100 shows in the feed so it doesn’t get unmanageable. Right now the oldest show in the feed is #439, and the feed is around 112K.I know people use the feed to download older shows, and with this in mind I am working on an “archive feed” (or feeds) with all the older shows to make downloading easier. Until I get that done, the previous RSS file is still on the site, named “rss2.xml” – this is temporary so only use it of you need to get the older shows, as I won’t be updating it.
