Re: is there a way to turn Spodify podcast links into RSS

I don’t think that is correct.  While podcasts in general can be downloaded, as I recall, I’ve seen sites offering what they call podcasts that aren’t.  Whatever the original meaning, that appears to be an accepted use now.
 
Podcasts on Spotify  raises an interesting question.  I’m not aware of Spotify having a feature for speeding up speech.  I would think that for many podcast listeners, being able to speed  up speech may be important.  Many of those who listen to enough podcasts to amount to something might want to save time.

If you can't subscribe as in follow the episodes so they download when a new one comes out, then it isn't really a podcast.

Maybe I should clarify that Spotify, if it lists its podcasts as exclusive, will not allow a feed to show anywhere. Parcast podcasts is an example of this. As of August 2, you can't get these podcasts anywhere other than Spotify.

Nope, I don't see anything about Apple ending support for Podcasts anytime soon. They just redesigned it on the phone, actually. I'm also not sure what you mean by "no longer work." Is the podcast directory going away? I think that's highly unlikely.

Sorry, Apple podcasts will not allow you to get any podcasts that are exclusive to Spotify such as the parcast podcasts. I'm not certain what others Spotify has purchased exclusive rights to. You will only be able to stream them through Spotify.

Re: Will I need to change my address if I change internet provider?

Gene
 

Some people object to using GMail because it collects information about your interests and preferences to present tailored advertising to you.  If I  was concerned about that, I’d use some sort of service that encrypts e-mail between you and the user.  I believe there are services that do this and present clear copies to your recipients, though they are encryped during transmission.  But e-mail isn’t private unless encrypted.
 
While I don’t think tech companies should be allowed to collect all sorts of information about people, I use GMail.  I don’t care if Google knows I read The New York Times, like The Beatles, and other preferencess it can tell from looking for certain words in my messages.
 
GMail works well, is free, and I can use it no matter how I access the Internet.

Maybe I should clarify that Spotify, if it lists its podcasts as exclusive, will not allow a feed to show anywhere. Parcast podcasts is an example of this. As of August 2, you can't get these podcasts anywhere other than Spotify.

Yeah, see if you can find the Apple podcasts URL, then run them through this site:

https://getrssfeed.com/

Thanks.
 


Re: Will I need to change my address if I change internet provider?

When we switched from Comcast to Cox cable because of a move, Comcast allowed us to keep our e-mail addresses providing we used them at least once a month. That was three years ago, so it may have changed, although it is still working for us. You need to contact Comcast and tell them you are switching and who your new provider will be. Once they give you the okay, you may need to let your new provider know as well. They will no doubt give you an e-mail address, but if it is the same as Cox cable, you just set up your Comcast e-mail account the same as you always did in your Outlook or whatever you use and it should work.

If you are wanting to get all of your mail via the new provider's website, that will only work for them, but my husband got his comcast e-mail on the comcast website for a long time after we moved until he added it to Outlook and gets it that way instead.

Hi,


I have used comcast for over 10 years and we are seriously contenplating going to AT&T.


My current email addie ends in comcast.net. If we do change provider, must I also change my internet address?


If I have to change my address, do you have suggestion/s for an address source that I won't have to change but can take intact from one provider to another.


I use updated versions of win10, jaws and Thunderbird.


Help and suggestions greatly appreciated.

Listening, you can do, but download you cannot, not even with a paid account, at least on the computer and I believe the format you can download on the phone only works on the phone.

Yesterday, there was a question about conditions for listening to Spotify podcasts.  It’s the same as other content on Spotify.  If you have a free account, you can listen.  I haven’t checked, but I would think that you will hear advertising unless you have a paid account.  But if you use Spotify as a free user, you can listen.
