Bypassing Podcast Update Delays

by Erica Sadun

Depending on how you've set your iTunes preferences, it can take hours or days for podcasts to update themselves. For all those people who wrote me last Wednesday about the Project Runway podcast, let me offer some basic hints.


  • Bravo generally has the Tim's Take podcast go "live" shortly after the East Coast premiere of each new episode. Sometimes Tim's Take has even gone live before the first showing has ended.

  • To bypass your iTunes preferences and immediately update your podcasts, select and control-click (right-click) the podcast name. Choose Update Podcast from the contextual pop-up and (if needed) click the GET button for the new episode.

Just for the record: Go Laura, Robert, Kayne, and Michael. Down with Vincent, Angela, Keith and the-guy-with-no-neck.
