A bunch of duplicates of Atlantic shows


Four duplicates of The Atlantic Magazine in Audio:

Thanks for reporting this, @mica.
We have duplicates simply for a technical reason that subscribers originally subscribed to different feeds (even though they match now), so it helps syncing with our mobile apps to retain the original series presence. They can subscribe to either interchangeably, by the way.

We used to merge duplicates but we stopped it for now because it was causing complications in syncing. Nonetheless, we’re trying a different approach to address this and avoid confusion.



Right. It’s not physically possible to allow people to import arbitrary feeds and also have no duplicates. The best we can do is have algorithms in place to avoid recommending them if already subscribed, avoid them boht appearing in search results or show full feed details if they do appear, etc. It’s an ongoing challenge.
