What are some of your favorite RSS feeds to subscribe to?

I am always looking for quality RSS feeds to add to my reader but they seem to be getting harder and harder to find. I've been looking for a good one for movie trailers for a long time. Apple has one but the trailers are published sporadically. I'm especially interested in any full-article feeds.

I've been following GRRM's Not A Blog and XKCD's webcomics via RSS. My favorite though is a very niche webcomic about older gamers sitting around playing a RPG:

    The Onion, to lighten my day. (Whole article in feed.)

    JL8, a fairly fun webcomic, if a little sporadic at release dates.

    My own Reddit inbox, to let me know if someone is shouting at me. (See this for all the RSS feeds Reddit provides.)

    Computer Museum. (Whole article in feed.)


    For movie trailers, I'd probably just grab a Youtube channel's RSS feed.

        The playlist RSS feeds used to cap at 15 videos or so, which made them useless for me. I hope they have or will fix that. Wonderful for the Crash Course video series!

          That's disappointing. I think I haven't noticed because my use-case is mainly notification of new content.

      If you want feeds of reddit it's worth pointing out you can get specific subreddits or multireddits like so:

      https://www.reddit.com/r/news+worldnews/.rss

      Just toss ".rss" onto the end of most reddit urls. Even works for subscribing to the comments of an individual thread. example

        This seems like the sort of thing they’re likely to kill at any moment. Hopefully not, but I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest.

          Yeah, it's a really old and relatively unknown feature. I wouldn't be surprised if a majority of reddit's current devs are unaware it exists. Here's a couple other interesting feeds:...

          Here's a couple other interesting feeds:

          https://www.reddit.com/r/all/comments/.rss - All comments
          https://www.reddit.com/r/all/gilded/.rss - All gilded comments and threads
          https://www.reddit.com/random/.rss - Random thread every time you load it

    News:

    • FiveThirtyEight - limited publications but occasionally the numbers-based approach yields interesting perspectives
    • The Guardian - a lot of noise but it's good for when you want the latest, fast
    • The Intercept - Just think they do good stuff and have interesting reports
    • The Economist - International - again, think they have good takes and it's usually well-reported. Paywall hits after three articles though, and only if you're signed up.
    • De Correspondent - A Dutch news site, which you might already have seen mentioned on here, they are launching their English version soon

      I tried Feedly but didn't like it was proprietary and I was giving up so much data. Now I just use Thunderbird.

        Flym is pretty good, but not so good at comics or images. For that, I use Feeder (available on F-droid), but it is pretty barebones otherwise.

      For Android I like Feeder. I still haven't found any reader I like for PC since Opera 12 stopped working (now it fails at loading many https websites on Linux, only Windows got the TLS update).
