Change home from Posts to Page, but preserve RSS feed? (2 posts)

    So I host a podcast from a WordPress installation. Each episode is a post, and they show up on the front page.
    The RSS feed I submitted to iTunes is http://teachmewp.com/?feed=rss2 which is just all the posts from my home page.

    Now I'd like to change themes, and change my home page to be a static page, instead of recent posts (so that I can have a clean front page, showing only a video player). I will probably use the Atahualpa theme.

    I am paranoid about messing up my RSS feed since I have built up hundreds of subscribers, am looking for advertisers, and any mess up at this point could be devastating.

    So the question(s).
    If I change from recent posts to a static page, what happens to my RSS feed? Does it continue to show my recent posts? (I searched all the documentation I could, and couldn't find this answer).

    If not, can anyone recommend a RSS plugin that would make this work? I'm thinking maybe something that could redirect the RSS address that iTunes has to the new address would work?

    Your thoughts?

    your rss feed remains the same by my understanding.....

    it is the feed of your posts..... I don't think what is being displayed on your front page has any matter. Your posts are still your posts, your front page will just be a page.
