I have a podcast RSS URL (copied in the clipboard) that I want to listen to in the Apple Podcasts app. On the "Listen Now" screen there's a link for "Add a show by URL" but when I tap it, nothing happens. I can't see another option to add a Podcast URL.

  • Thanks, I think this was a bug. After an upgrade it worked. Disappointing that there would be such a bug out of the box. I'll leave the question here though, I think someone else might run in to it.

It looks like this was a bug in the Podcasts app. An upgrade to iOS 15.4 fixed it.
