The “Really Simple” part of RSS is sometimes misleading. What if you want to pull in content from an RSS feed and display it on your site? Doing that from scratch would be no-so-easy, but thankfully we have wonderful SimplePie to do the heavy lifting for us. In this screencast we build a really simple site that grabs content from multiple RSS feeds, smushes them together, and displays them using our own custom markup.
