  1. Automated feed recommendations based on programs/feeds I have rated

    Something similar to Amazon or Netflix recommendations would be ideal.

        • Improve program titles in RSS feeds

          When I subscribe to each feed separately, iTunes helps me keep track of where they came from. But when I subscribe to multiple feeds via a SpokenWord.org collection I lose the ability to distinguish programs according to their original source feed. Can you add the title of the feed to the title of the program so I can see it in the iTunes list? (swo-158)

            • Follow a feed or collection without adding to any collection

              Right now, you can follow a collection, which automatically adds all
              new programmes in that collection (or feed) to your collection.

              This leads to huge collections.
              It dilutes the quality of collections, and the meaning of the
              collection count, because hand-picked collections are lumped in with
              these auto-collections. (Huge collections also seem to have become a
              performance head-ache)

              I propose that we remove the feature to add whole collections
              automatically.

              There are two other important uses for following collections:

              1) Create an aggregated feed out of all the source feeds.

              2) The social aspect: Following a feed registers as a…

              • Search via filename

                The lowest common denominator for all podcatchers is the filename (via the enclosure URL)...there's currently no support to search via that, however.

                • Allow subscription to sub-feeds of master feeds

                  A case in point is the master feed of IT Conversations. I would like to be able to subscribe to the individual sub feeds such as Tech Nation or Interviews with Innovators etc. To be able to distinguish and browse them individually away from the main IT Converstions feed would also be great.

                  • Reduce time lag Spokenword website and my queue rss

                    If I change my Spokenword queue, it takes quite a while for the RSS to update. I can't just go straight to my podcatcher and download the new podcasts I have selected.
