Ah, RSS feeds, that old chestnut. If you want folks to hear your podcast, your RSS feed has to have them perfectly formatted—no extra spaces, all the right tags, all the right protocols. If you don't know what you're doing, it can be a headache (a massive one). Fortunately, you don't need to bother with any of that: Acast Open takes care of the code, so you can focus on your podcast.

You might have noticed that Acast Open's RSS feeds look a bit different...a bit nicer if you will.

Legible text, clickable links, and playable episodes—all the things you'd want for your listeners. And, of course, behind the scenes the code is structured perfectly to work with all podcast players and apps.
