I am just setting up my recording hut, but i have done a few test episodes which is really private (used those for learning and educating myself). Any help in getting started will be good, and i also have some burning questions to address in my first few episodes too.

Thanks for posting, I’m a junior tester and will follow this podcast @sjprior. Listening to the CV’s episode at the moment and it’s very useful even though I’m not currently looking for a new role.

Passion was a big word that was mentioned in the episode. For a tester like me who doesn’t know where they are headed yet, what if you don’t know your ‘passion’? Can it be ‘built’ up? I don’t know about you, but I don’t like the word ‘passion’ because it brings up the image of people ‘either have it or not’. It’s probably a whole episode itself but I just wanted to put that out there as a listener.

In case anyone is interested, I found the The Testing Peers RSS feed as well on https://feeds.buzzsprout.com/1078751.rss.

P.S. I don’t know if it was intentional but your logo design looks like the avg antivirus logo :slight_smile:

Hey guys! I am the helper behind a new podcast by Federico Toledo called Quality Sense (helping you improve your sense for software quality!). We’ve just published our 15th episode, which featured Michael Bolton, which was huge for us! To have such a genius on the show.

Each week we have a new interview with someone on testing or tech in general. If you want to collab with us or suggest someone to join, that would be awesome! We’ve just reached 3,000 plays.

Hey Philip,

You bring up a good point with the conversation around “passion”, we actually talked about it in our recording of the the podcast last night, hopefully that will make its way to a future episode along the line!

The inspiration for the logo was actually the blur best of album cover, they’ve not let me sing yet though!

Hi Kalei, I’d not heard of your podcast, I will dig it out and give it a listen. If you are ever interested, I’d be up for being a guest at some point :slight_smile:

Hi Chris, I just realised my name was mentioned in the latest podcast. Thanks for addressing this topic, I’m going to listen to it now and hopefully pick up a thing or two.

By the way, the feed I tried to use above ‘https://feeds.buzzsprout.com/1078751.rss’ doesn’t quite work. I can add it as an RSS source on my RSS client (QuiteRSS), but when I actually try to access a link, it brings me to a page that just goes to ‘https://feeds.buzzsprout.com/’. See below.

I wonder if you have a alternative rss link I can use?

Hi @pwong,

Yeah, I thought you raised a really good point. I hope that we went some way to addressing your question, I thought it was well worthwhile spending some time talking around the topic.

As for the RSS feed, I’m not sure what’s gone on there, we’ll take a look, thank you for raising it!

Hi Chris, you had a chance to look at the RSS feed yet?

Hi @pwong

I’m terribly sorry for taking so long.

If I follow the link https://feeds.buzzsprout.com/1078751.rss directly, then I am not presented with any error.

Is the error only present when you access it via QuiteRSS?

I’m sorry if I have misinterpreted your question, I personally haven’t invested so much time in RSS feeds, so it’s a good learning experience for me, at the very least.

I think it’s unlikely it’s a problem with QuiteRSS. The problem is not with the RSS link itself, it’s a problem with the link for any feeds that I pull through.

  1. Subscribe to https://feeds.buzzsprout.com/1078751.rss using any RSS client
  2. Update your client so you get get some feeds from Testing Peers
  3. Try to go on the link on any of the feeds in step 2, they all lead to https://feeds.buzzsprout.com/ (image as I posted before).

I expected to be directed to the specific episode post of an episode. So for now, it means I have to open up the browser, go on testingpeers.com and find the post myself.

Just an FYI, it doesn’t seem to validate with W3C either: https://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=https%3A%2F%2Ffeeds.buzzsprout.com%2F1078751.rss

Ok, I think we’ll have to raise a query with Buzzsprout then.
