    Cannot subscribe to Geek Friday

    I'm using BeyondPod on my new Nexus 4 and am generally very happy with it, but I find I cannot subscribe to Geek Friday from 5by5.

    It always produces an error that seems to be some kind of 404.

    Any ideas?

    The URL that BP finds if you search does indeed fail, but if you go to the podcast's page and look for the Subscribe via RSS link, it appears to work.

    If you're reading this on your device, long-press the RSS link above, select "Copy link URL" (unfortunately depending on your browser), and paste that over BP's feed URL.

    BP folks, how hard is it to update the search info?

    No problem! I'm glad it helped.

    Poking around websites often reveals goodies in other ways, too!

    I think they may have changed the URLs for all their feeds in the last few months. ISTR 5by5's feed changing a couple of months ago too - not long after it started.

    That one has now been updated in the directory. We haven't had a chance to check the other 5by5 ones yet.
