I have NextDNS running and use Pocketcasts as my podcatcher.
Starting yesterday, the Twit podcasts in Pocketcasts are not available anymore. Must be a NextDNS issue. If I disable NextDNS, all works perfectly.
Anyone having the same experience?
Yes, there are a couple of threads about this (not NextDNS, but DNS filtering in general). You need to whitelist some of the trackers that TWiT is forced to use:
(Megaphone switched from providing the feeds over megaphone.fm to traffic.megaphone.fm, I reblocked the main megaphone.fm after I whitelisted traffic.megaphone.fm and it still works.)
As I value my privacy, I’ve switched over to Club TWiT, which offers tracking free (and ad free) feeds for all the shows.
I use NextDNS, as well. Remember you can totally configure it, including choosing which blockers to use, or none at all.
Great, that fixed it. I whitelisted these domains on my NextDNS and all is working again.
