Happy Jacks RSS Feed Change

Note: this is cross-posted from Happy Jacks RPG Podcast.

As some of you may be aware, our feed changed. We had to. We should have done it two years ago, but lacked the foresight. So we’ve bitten the bullet and done it now.

As a result, listenership (according to our download numbers) has taken a serious hit — even though we showed up in the iTunes Games & Hobbies/Other Games as #1 and the big Games & Hobbies directory at #10. Go figure. Perhaps that’s people unsubscribing and resubscribing.

Since this change has temporarily (we hope) separated us from many of our listeners, we’re asking everyone to help us out. Please spread the word. Link to this post. Tweet it. Blog about it. Share it on Facebook, Google+, Linkedin, etc.

If you are a podcaster in the table-top RPG niche, we’re asking a special favor. Can you mention this on your show? Listener surveys show that if someone listens to one RPG podcast, they probably listen to several. If you can mention our feed change, we will gladly reciprocate by playing your promo at the top of one of our episodes.

Here’s what we know will help people get back in contact:

  1. Within iTunes, unsubscribing and resubscribing to the show seems to do the trick.
  2. In other podcatchers manually change the feed to happyjacks.org/feed/podcast/
    (the actual play is happyjacks.org/feed/actualplay/)
  3. For the future, please consider signing up for our email newsletter. There is a form for your email address in the sidebar to the right (the same form is on Happyjacks.org and Douicheydm.com). That way, if anything like this ever happens again (though it shouldn’t!) we’ll be able to contact you and update you.

Thanks for your time and support.
