Note:Leesa Barnestakes over this blog while Jon enjoys his nuptials and honeymoon on the West Coast. He returns August 10th. Enjoy Leesa's take on podcasting in the meantime.
By way of Podcasting News, I found out about a cool tool developed by ProfCast (go to their page, scroll down and you'll see the tool on the bottom right). You can use ProfCast to update your RSS feed to include the new iTunes categories without having to make these changes manually.
It's pretty easy to use. I entered my URL (I think it wants my feed URL yes, it's the feed URL), plugged in my email (not sure why it wants that, but I did anyways) and clicked Submit.
Because I'm using to syndicate my podcast, there was no change needed to my feed. However, I'm wondering for those who aren't using Feedburner and if you haven't updated your podcast to the new iTunes categories, can you use this tool and report on it? Post your comments below, please.
