I like to listen to some Guardian podcasts like Tech Weekly - been doing this through Stitcher on my iPod Touch. Yesterday I bought a Squeezebox Boom and have been busy installing things like BBC iPlayer, BBC iPlayer Extras, BBC Podcasts etc.. It is all looking good, but I cannot find a way of adding the Guardian podcasts to the Squeezebox.

Any ideas?

Many thanks.

You need to enable the Podcast services in App Gallery. Then use mysqueezebox.com to add the Guardian podcast url.

Excellent! That worked. Can I add this as a favourite? I tried allocating it to a pre-set, but that didn't work. I would like 'Guardian Tech Weekly' as a favourite and when selected it would show the episodes available. I would rather not have to search for it each time I want to listen to the latest episode.

Thanks.

I managed to find the Guardian Tech Weekly podcast url and added it in my squeezebox.com

For future reference the url is: http://www.guardian.co.uk/podcast/0,,331507003,00.xml

I just wish it was easier to find! Found it in some user comments on a Guardian web page.

This Squeezebox malarky gets better and better!

Thanks for your help, guys!

Dunno, each podcast is a separate/independent program so I'd guess each would have to be added/selected individually.
Might try the suggested podcast apps, they may have some better menu navigation options to see & play them more to your liking.
I don't use podcasts myself. :(

I had the same problem but have finally worked it out.

I've tried to post them but it seems I need to post at least once before I can post links (not sure why) so here is my first post then hopefully it'll work next time.
