There’s probably nothing as misunderstood in podcasting as the RSS feed. This is THE THING that controls all of the content of your feed, and without it you literally wouldn’t have a podcast.
In this module we talk all about what makes up and RSS feed, what you need for it to be considered valid, and a few things that iTunes specifically looks at when it comes to your podcast RSS feed.
It’s important to remember that your feed has 2 main components: the channel information which is meta information about your podcast as a whole, and episode specific information which is unique to each episode you publish.
