There's a link on this page http://www.intelligencesquared.com/events/catholic-church to the "Intelligence Squared podcast", but it's some strange link that works only in iTunes. I have Rhythmbox. Can anyone find the actual RSS feed? I assume there's an RSS feed in there somewhere.

NPR provide a podcast of Intelligence Squared debates here:

Perhaps you can share some of the details described in the podcast? – Jacob Jan Tuinstra Jan 4 '13 at 18:07

I booted into Windows, downloaded iTunes, subscribed to the podcast, right-clicked on the podcast and selected "Copy podcast URL". Pasted into a browser address bar, and had a look at it. It's http://iq2.podbean.com/feed/. And this feed is linked to from http://iq2.podbean.com/. The "subscribe in iTunes" button there is the normal type, which links to the feed directly, using the itpc: pseudo-protocol which Rhythmbox also understands.

So I booted back into Ubuntu and subscribed without difficulty.

I really don't understand why the main IQ2 site can't have a normal link like that, instead of making us jump through hoops.

It may be that their RSS feed is not publicly accessible and they only want you to get it via iTunes.

I get it on my Windows machine and my Windows Phone 8 device, just have to use the NPR feed. – Wayne In Yak Jan 4 '13 at 21:34
