What is RSS?
RSS, which stands for Really Simple Syndication, is an easy way to keep up with your favorite news and information. An RSS feed contains headlines, summaries and links to full news stories on npr.org or an NPR Member station websites.
In many browsers, if you click an RSS link, you will see XML (or eXtensible Markup Language) code in your browser. This is to be expected, since you do not view RSS content through a browser.
You can view the headlines through an RSS news reader (also called an RSS aggregator). Our main RSS page provides links to our feeds, and you can find them elsewhere in the site where you see the orange "rss" icon.
