Hello! I have a list of podcasts for which I would like to import new episode records into a separate table. I have RSS feed URL’s for each podcast, and those are updated regularly when new episodes are released.

I’ve run this through Zapier’s ‘New item in multiple feeds’ Zap, though you have to manually input each RSS URL and are limited to 10 feeds per Zap (I’ve got hundreds of pods). This can be tedious if you have a lot of podcasts. I would love to find a way to reference the RSS field automatically and import new items. I’ve heard that webhooks could help, but I’m not that familiar with how they work.

I’d appreciate any input!

Chris

Hi Chris,

I just wrote a blog post on how to do this with Data Fetcher. Follow from the start but the Fetch Episodes For Multiple Podcasts section does exactly what you need. Should only take a minute or two to set up.
