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.

  • There's a distinction between US and British here; both are named "intelligence squared" with the US provided, I think, through NPR as below and the British is via NPR. I can only find the British series on YouTube but can't seem to find a subscription...

NPR provide a podcast of Intelligence Squared debates here:

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.
