2-3 weeks is more like it. It's just a question of waiting, there is no way of speeding it up. The feed appears to be fine. Don't submit it again - you won't be able to anyway.

Thank you Roger for your quick response.
WOW! 2-3 weeks i thought that it was 2-3 days but i guess that is because nowadays everybody are sending podcasts right?
Do you know if once my rss feed is accepted whenever i upload a new episode it will take also 2-3 weeks to be approved and shown in the iTunes or it will be much faster than this?
I really appreciate it.

Once it's approved and in the Store you don't have to get any further approval. When you add a new episode you simply re-upload the feed - that's all you need to do. The new episode appears immediately for subscribers because their iTunes application reads the feed directly and the Store is not involved.
However because of the huge number of podcasts in the Store (thousands) the Store caches the feed and checks it for updates periodically. For this reason it usually takes 1-2 days for new episodes to appear in the Store: sometimes it can be less, and occasionally the whole process seems to get stuck and it can take several days.
You should check your feed by subscribing, either from the Store page or manually from the 'Advanced' menu in iTunes, to see that your new episodes are there. If not, then you have an error of some sort (such as a duplicated 'guid' tag). If all your episodes appear when subscribing then the Store should catch up after a bit.
