Previously it seemed that the stack exchange RSS feed was at http://blog.stackexchange.com/?feed=podcast

This no longer points to an RSS feed. Looking around, the options seem to be http://blog.stackexchange.com/feed/, which has podcasts and blog entries (undesirable because of RSS feed clutter), and http://blog.stackoverflow.com/category/podcasts/feed/, which is limited to podcasts only, but doesn't actually contain the media files, and so is useless for podcatchers. What is the correct RSS feed?

The canonical URL for the podcast feed is now: http://blog.stackoverflow.com/feed/podcast/

301 redirects have now been set up from old feed URLs to the new canonical one, so subscriptions should update automatically. We are working on re-submitting to the iTunes store to get that piece settled too (once some final kinks are worked out).

The blog is now open source, so you can see what's been done to the feeds to elicit current behavior or even submit a pull request if you think there are improvements to be made. (Here's the latest major update to the feed.)

  • https:// also works, apparently, though evidently the security is stripped before the actual mp3 is downloaded. Thanks! – Paul Aug 25 '15 at 21:55

    @Paul No prob! Your question was perfectly timed - we literally just got this up :) – hairboat Aug 25 '15 at 21:56

  • The sidebar blog link is broken. blog.stackexchange.com/2015/08/… doesn't work. It needs to be: blog.stackexchange.com/2015/08/… – Mazura Aug 25 '15 at 23:02
  • @Mazura I'm on mobile now, but when I left the office there were two links: one working, and one still bad (which should drop off soon - caching). – hairboat Aug 25 '15 at 23:04
