The decentralized structure of podcasts creates a
chicken-and-egg problem for JSON Feed to gain adoption. There’s
no incentive for podcasters to publish in JSON Feed as long as
podcast players don’t support it. And there’s no incentive for
podcast players to support JSON Feed as long as podcasters don’t
publish in that format.
Breaker is hoping to break that stalemate by adding support for
JSON Feed in our latest release. As far as we know, Breaker is the
first podcast player to do so. Unlike other features that
differentiate Breaker, we encourage our competitors to follow our
lead in this area. The sooner all podcast players support JSON
Feed, the better positioned the entire podcast ecosystem will be
for the decades to come.
