Traditional RSS feeds are unsuited to serialized fiction, because they tend always to deliver the most recently published episode first. If the work is complete, that would mean you'd be starting with the last episode. If not, you may be starting somewhere in the middle. Either way, this is not good.

So we've come up with a way of providing RSS feeds which always deliver the episodes in the right order, starting from episode one. There are preconfigured feeds for daily and weekly delivery. If you would prefer some alternative delivery schedule, just click on Custom, and you can arrange whatever delivery schedule you desire.

Features of Badger Books

No need to register - We just give you the feed and let you get on with using it.

No branding - We don't insert any messages at the start of podcast episodes. We provide you with the original content, unmodified.

Promos - We believe that promos are the lifeblood of the podcasting community. We want our promos to be played on other podcasts so that people get to hear about us, and likewise, other podcasts want their promos played on yet other podcasts. In a community of free content, podcasters who make their shows for love tend to help each other out by playing each other's promos, and we are happy to be taking part in that sharing. Melding the technology of serial delivery of archived works with the requirement to deliver up-to-date promos was an interesting technical challenge, but we managed it by interspersing episodes with the occasional promo. We will never insert a promo into an episode - promos are delivered between episodes, not during them. This also makes it possible for you, the listener, to burn the episodes onto a CD, promo-free, once you've reached the end of a series. We promise never to send you more than one promo for each actual episode (so you won't get deluged!)

New to Podcasting?

If you're new to podcasting, check out this podcasting primer, courtesy of the Signal. The most important thing to know is that when we give you a feed address (which is just a URL), you need to copy and paste that address into your podcatcher, because that's how you subscribe (that is, start receiving episodes). Subscribing is free.
