Useful Tools: Podcast URL Extractor

If you like listening to podcasts, you might have run into the following problem: a friend recommends a certain interesting podcast to you, but it is only available on iTunes. That is an obstacle if you do not own Apple products or have the iTunes software installed on your Windows PC. On some operating systems, such as Linux, iTunes is not even natively available. You might try using WINE, but it is not optimal.

To add an iTunes podcast to a random podcatcher program, either on your computer, or on your smartphone, you need the rss feed address of the podcast. Luckily, there is a nifty website that extracts the rss feed from the iTunes page of a particular podcast.

Simply copy and paste the URL of the iTunes page of the podcast into a form field and get back the rss feed address to copy into your podcatcher.

You can also enter keywords, which will result in a list of related podcasts that may or may not be of interest to you.

Here is the page:

This is how it looks:

Happy podcast listening! Why not enlighten yourself with a good program while doing chores or sports?
