BBC Podcasts, iPlayer Radio and Google Podcasts
« on: 00:31:52 | 26 March, 2019 »
BBC Podcasts have disappeared off Google Podcasts, and large areas of programming, seems to have been removed from iPlayer Radio.

Is there a similar issue with internet radio devices in general?

The Beeb has been aggressively pushing its Sounds app over iPlayer, but has not made Sounds available abroad.

My podcast aggregator still seems to be able to access BBC material.

I can only speak for iPlayer plugin on LMS - no problems with podcasts (other than the Beeb curating aggressively what is available)

  • I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong!

I thought that I was wrong once, but I may have been mistaken :-)
