I just sent this via SMS:

"Brb, ravenously hungry and must feed:)"

(With the spacing and punctuation exactly as seen above)

and the word "feed:" became a link automatically. When I tapped on it to find out where it leads, it took me into the Podcast app.

Any idea why this happens?

Pretty sure that it is keying on the word feed as a syntax for loading a podcast; the word feed followed by a colon. feed:[nameOfPodcast] I wasn't able to confirm this but I'd bet that is what is happening.
