A "podcast" behind a paywall is not a podcast.

A "podcast" that only one app can receive is not a podcast.

A "podcast" without a public feed that can be freely pulled into any podcast client or RSS reader is not a damn podcast, don't let people get away with calling it that.


That's like calling a Pearl jam album a podcast, right?

iPodder was the first app allowing subscriptions to feeds, afaicr. It used RSS and pushed mp3s onto iTunes to d/l onto an iPod and predated Apple's own iTunes efforts.

If it ain't RSS audio enclosures it ain't podcasts.

Atom, schmatom. Smells like RSS so it's RSS. In my mind anyway. Deffo.
