Podcasts on Nook Color

I purchased the Podcast app for my nook color and it works great with NPR, Security Now, PBS Newshour, and This Week In Tech; however, I did't sign up for any of them. But the programs I tried to download I get a reponse that no podcasts are available, even though there are many available. Probably entering the station info wrong but I'd sure like to get a discussion going on how to access new stations.

I hope this isn't too late. I exported the podcast file through the Settings > Export. This creates a file called Podcast.xml. I then connected my Nook Color to the computer, opened the file with notepad and edited the XML tags. Just copy a section that includes all the tags from <Podcast> to </Podcast> and paste it to the end but make sure it goes in before the closing switch </list>. The tags are pretty self explanatory if you aren't used to XML . I think the only one that is really important in the one where you put the URL in (<urlRss> and </urlRss>). Save the file and do an Import back in to Streaming Podcasts (Settings > Import). I added rss feed for Stuff You Missed in History Class and some other NPR podcasts this way. I hope this helps.
