The success of This Reality Podcast (who would have thought, when that project was first started,Â that I’d ever use those words?) has outgrown the little offshoot home here.
It’s a sad day.
Yeah, sorry. I’ll pull myself together.
As youÂ will have guessed from the title and start, This RealityÂ might be moving but it’s continuing.
Can you guess where it’s going?
In a fit of unusual mental clarity we’ve registered the domain name http://thisrealitypodcast.com.
What does this mean?
Hopefully, it should actually mean very little because, by the wonder of technology, we have set a redirect for the podcast RSS feeds. This redirect should do the equivalent of flicking a switch and making the changeover seamless.
But what if I listen throughÂ iTunes?
We have launched a special iTunes redirect which should automatically switch from our old home to the new one – with no need for you to do anything. Is this cool? If you fire up your iTunes software after the next episode has been released iTunes should get the next episode from its new location – you shouldn’t notice a thing. Well, let’s see if it works first!
What if I listen through another mp3 catcher?
Hopefully the RSS feed redirects we’ve launchedÂ will also make the necessary changes for you. But, because of the technical nature of the various mp3 catcher products, we do acknowledge that this really might not be hitch-free. And if you do have hassles, can we just say that we’re very sorry about that?. We doÂ suggest that, just in case, you consider undertakingÂ a manual subscription to our new feed.
Where is the new RSS feed for This Reality podcast?
It’s right here: http://thisrealitypodcast.com/?feed=podcast
When will the changes take place?
We’ve already made them! This means that the redirects should be up and running in plenty of time forÂ the next episode (which will be Episode 20 – which will have a much anticipated Gallic flavour, just for Bastille Day!).
What will happen to the old episodes?
Nothing. Our archive will stay where it’s always been. The old episodes might get moved with time but for now they’re safe there – don’t worry, they won’t be deleted!
Will anything change for people who listen on the website?
No. As well as the funky RSS functionality, this new home will also offer the same ‘Listen here’ and/or ‘Download now’ options to people who visit the website, as did the old home.
So if there any teething problems, I hope you’ll give us a little bit of time to work things out. And if there aren’t – I hope you’ll give us a big kiss and a Gold Star for getting it right.
