Hmm. iTunes still does not show it... Oh, well! I was hoping to add it to my iPod for the trek across West Texas tomorrow (and things that are not downloaded through iTunes are in odd places...)

Hrmm. Still trying to puzzle this one out! Thanks to you, David, and the several listeners who have mentioned it.

The episode is not being listed in iTunes in the catalog, but if you are already subscribed, the files seem to be downloading properly. According to my tests, the feeds are valid, but there is clearly something not quite right. Strange thing is, the new item I added to the feed (the new episode) contains pretty much the EXACT same code as the previous dozen entries.

Hrmm....

Feed update.

The enhanced feed seems to be listing the episodes properly now for me on iTunes. I think the mp3 version will as well within the next day or so. From what I have discovered, the issue at hand is a bug in iTunes that sometimes causes the latest episodes not to list as they should. I tweaked the feeds ever-so-slightly and that seems to have fixed the issue.

That, or iTunes just likes playing games with our feed.

The main thing is, the episodes are definitely there for download. If you hit the subscribe button (even if you don't see the current episode listed), it should download once you're subscribed.

Have a happy new year, everyone.

Stephen
