Welcome to the next generation of podcasting with enhanced RSS feeds powered by Podcasting 2.0 - a more immersive and interactive experience for both listeners and creators. With features like Location Information, Medium Type, Custom Text and new funding models, listeners now have additional ways to engage with their favorite podcasters, including you!
For twenty years, podcasting has relied upon RSS to function, as the industry continues to evolve, Podcasting 2.0 seeks to advance and evolve the central technology behind this medium: the RSS feed.
Podcasting 2.0 is most commonly thought of as a collaborative development of new "tags" that can be included in podcast RSS feeds, with each tag opening up an opportunity for a new podcasting feature to be adopted by the industry.
Captivate has been involved in developing the new Podcasting 2.0 features and, as features become more mature, continues to adopt the most useful features that will positively impact the success of the serious independent podcaster and creator along with those being adopted by the industry as a whole.*
Read our "Podcasting 2.0 explained" article to find out more about Podcasting 2.0 and what it means for a serious independent podcaster like you.
