(Not really a) Podcast
It’s not really a podcast per se, but it resembles one. Basically I speak and record the contents of writing and photography posts, providing another format to enjoy them in. If coming back to the website to read posts isn’t always your thing, then perhaps listening to posts might be better.
To subscribe, just enter in the podcast URL – https://chrisjones.io/podcast.xml – into your favourite podcast player, or subscribe though iTunes.
What are feeds?
Wikipedia defines them thusly:
On the World Wide Web, a web feed (or news feed) is a data format used for providing users with frequently updated content. Content distributors syndicate a web feed, thereby allowing users to subscribe a channel to it. Making a collection of web feeds accessible in one spot is known as aggregation, which is performed by a news aggregator. A web feed is also sometimes referred to as a syndicated feed.
It’s very much like the timeline on your favourite social media site. You see a list of recently published content and a link to the full post on the publishers website. But instead of the timeline being prioritised by some giant corporation with different goals than you, you get to choose what you subscribe to and how often your timeline is updated, how it’s organized, etc.
