Thanks for adding updateFrequency to the Podnews RSS feed! I hope it proves a nice progressive enhancement that doesn’t require all hosts to get on board before apps make it available to listeners.

My first Sats boost ever! Not bad for a late bloomer, hence me being The Late Bloomer Actor. Have recently moved to using Fountain as my podcast player as a result of your recommendation; and Buzzcast aka your sponsor Buzzsprout (also the host for my podcast) due to their concerns over Spotify's attempts to corner (own) the podcast world. Thanks guys, I get great value from listening to you for pointers on my own podcast. Love ya work. Bonus points if you can figure out the 1973 sats!
