Slow downloads update

Ok, so episode 73 is now officially hosted on LibSyn and should download quickly from here on. That said, I’m not sure if your podcast client will refresh the feed right away. Here’s what worked for me…

In iTunes, I unsubscribed and deleted the podcast entirely, then went into the iTunes Store podcast directory and re-subscribed. It loaded the updated feed and downloaded the latest episode in a couple of minutes.

If you select the show in your list of subscribed podcasts and click the ‘i’ icon at the far right you should see a window that shows you the feed URL. This URL should be http://feeds.feedburner.com/talkingdead .

If it’s one of the old URLs (on talkingdeadpodcast.com), that is probably ok because the audio file will still come from LibSyn, and download quickly. Also the next time you refresh, the URL in iTunes will probably be updated to the feedburner link.

If you use another program to download podcasts, the feed URL above should be what you’re subscribed to.

Alright, here’s to hoping that all this crap is behind us and everybody can have nice quick downloads from here on.

I need a drink.

Chris

P.S. – I have not moved past episodes over to Liberated Syndication for now so if you’re trying to download episode 72 or earlier it’s still gonna be slow. Once things ease up on the old server a bit those back episodes should download faster.

The Talking Dead #73: “Jimmy’s down!”

Hi everybody,

Season 2 has officially ended, and Jason and I are here to recap the finale as well as read a tonne of Holy Crap, did you see that? moments and listener feedback. We also take a few minutes to chat about Michonne’s recent appearance in Playboy. We cap it all off by revealing our plans for the next few weeks including a couple of upcoming special guests.

Feed Changes

Hi everybody,

If you’ve been having trouble downloading recent episodes, it’s because our web host has been throttling us due to high demand. I have added some caching to our site, and made some changes to the RSS feed in an attempt to alleviate the problem and speed everything up.

In case you’re wondering, our new RSS feed is http://feeds.feedburner.com/talkingdead/

The nice thing is you don’t have to change the RSS feed you’re subscribed to in order to continue automatically downloading the latest episode. If you’re using the old feed, you will be automatically redirected to the new one. The changes should be totally transparent to everybody, but hopefully the downloads will happen a lot smoother.

If anybody continues to have issues, please let me know by sending an email to talkingdeadpodcast@gmail.com. We’ll do our best to get things sorted out for you.

Thanks for listening!

Chris

The Talking Dead #72: “The City That Rhymes With Fun”

History was made on the podcast this week. It’s the first time a listener has named the show (albeit unknowingly). If you want to find out what that title means, or listen to us recap and debate “Better Angels”, you’ll have to tune in.

You can find the “On The Media” segment mentioned right here.

Also note, I know some of you have been experiencing really slow downloads of the show, and I wanted to let you know we’re looking into it. Thanks for listening, and being patient with us while we experience some growing pains.

As always, thanks for listening!
