SoundCloud has lots of great stuff on it, but I prefer not to use their app for listening to podcasts, so I like to use the RSS feed. However, SoundCloud hide it because they want you to use their app or site. This little shell script will find it for you. I call it
Use it like so, after putting the script in
~/bin/ and running
chmod 700 ~/bin/soundcloud2rss.sh to make it executable:
$ ~/bin/soundcloud2rss.sh https://soundcloud.com/cultural-anthropology https://feeds.soundcloud.com/users/soundcloud:users:43958371/sounds.rss
This assumes you’re running some kind of Unix-like system. There are other ways you could pick the URL out of the one line of HTML, but I like sed’s simplicity.
