    For what it’s worth, the feed URL is: http://www.oneshotpodcast.com/category/backstory/feed/ In iTunes you can do File->Subscribe to Podcast, enter the URL, and be good to go. For those of you who, like me, want to listen to this on your phone today-ish instead of waiting for iTunes to index the show.
