This has been happening quite a lot, and appears to be a problem with the Store server. Try this alternative address:
If that doesn't work, I can only advise waiting a day or so and trying again. If it still doesn't work, try emailing them at podcasts 'at' apple.com, but don't be surprised if you get a form answer telling you how to submit a podcast (which you already know).

Roger - thanks for the response. I tried that link but it still doesn't work! It's already been a day or two since I first tried. So will try again tomorrow and if not, maybe try a different computer?

Hi Roger, still NOT working. Tried installing on a different computer and getting the same error. Does this mean that no one can submit a new feed right now? Any other ideas? Thanks.

Just wanted to update this so others can benefit from my experience.
As Roger suggested I did email Apple and got a response. That didn't solve the problem as they asked for more information and then I didn't hear back from them (at least not yet).
2 things I learned:
1) Make sure your podcast has at least 1 live episode in it before submitting. (not sure if this is critical or not, but I changed this).
2) I created a new Apple ID and than submitted again. Then it worked right away.
Thanks Roger again for the suggestions and hope that helps others. Now just waiting for Apple to approve the podcast so it's in their store.

This is mandatory. Your podcast won't be accepted unless there is at least one playable episode in it, and they don't much like obvious tests as they need to get some idea of what the content will be.
