Create an RSS feed for podcasts with your Gatsby Site. While gatsby-plugin-feed is great for creating RSS feeds for blogs, it is difficult to make the iTunes custom_elements found in the RSS package.

Fork of https://github.com/csellis/gatsby-plugin-podcast-feed that adds the enclosure tag to the items


npm install --save gatsby-plugin-podcast-rss-feed
