Instead of linking out to an RSS XML feed, which most people won't know what to do with, you can add links to your podcast's directory listings for easy access on their favourite devices.
You can find the Directories options within your Podcast.co App. Head to Share & Publish > RSS & Publishing. This is where you will add your directory links. Not all of them are required. Only the subscribe options you add links to will appear on your page and players.

Apple Podcasts / iTunes
Head to iTunes Linkmaker then search for your Podcast's name. Be sure to change the Media Type to Podcasts (It's Apple Music by default so won't show you the correct content).
Click your Podcast, or click View More if it's not shown on the first page.
Your sharing options will appear. From here you can get the 'Listen on Apple Podcasts' button which you can embed on your website etc. Below this you will find your Direct Link. This is what you need to paste into the Apple Podcasts section your Podcast.co App.
