Funkwhale, dev, podcasts πŸŽ‰ 

So, another milestone in the podcast was reached this week

You may remember we wanted our channels to be compatible with the current audio ecosystem. The first step was to ensure each #funkwhale channel had a RSS feed, to allow subscription outside of Funkwhale, through existing apps such as AntennaPod.

But there also the other side: what about existing podcasts available through RSS feeds, outside of Funkwhale? Can we make this content accessible within the platform?

Well, the answer is yes, and it's now possible to subscribe to any existing podcast from Funkwhale, using its RSS feed, as shown in the demo video below.

We'll need further testing to ensure it works with the widest range of podcast feeds available out there, but it's already usable!

@eliotberriot this looks really cool! Has there been some more efforts on the android app? Currently the one I've seen is kinda broken :(
