I don't know how you've managed this, but you've got the code for the feed entered inside the description tag in the Feedburner feed. This isn't going to work. It's possible to get a working podcast feed out of Blogger, but I'm afraid I can't advise on the method. Whatever you did to achieve this result isn't it, I'm afraid.

That actually was a whole new attempt to make this work.
Before that all I had in the blog post was a description and the link that goes straight to a page with just the audio on it.

That won't work either. If you're working in Blogger you don't have to create all those tags yourself, Blogger should do it for you - but evidently you do have to take specific steps to get it to produce a podcast feed as opposed to a straight blog feed.

I have changed it back to the way I originally had it, and have followed all the steps I think I must take on blogger. Is there any other things I can check into? This is incredibly frustrating.

It's fine now: it can be subscribed to manually in iTunes and the episodes OK, and the feed validates. The episode media file play properly in a browser; so you ought not to have any problems.
There is one issue you could address, even though it's not actually causing any problems. Your media file filenames have spaces in them. Spaces are not allowed in a URL: the feed is handling this correctly by substituting the code %20 for each space, but it's bad practice and it would be better to remove the space. The usual workaround is to substitute an underscore. Remember to amend the feed as well as the file. However as you've had problems with Blogger you might want to leave the present ones alone, but I should avoid spaces in future.

Roger, thanks so much for your help. I will definitely keep that in mind in the future. The last question I have to ask you about this whole thing and then I promise (hope) I can leave you alone is this. My podcast was accepted and works on itunes now, this is the link for it https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/k-soc-society-radio/id603331092?mt=2 What I don't like is how it has the "firstname.lastname@example.org" there, how would I get rid of that? Do you know? I have looked around in blogger and feedburner as much as I can and I can't seem to find it.
Thanks again so much! You're awesome!

This is because you have no 'itunes:author' tag which should show there and carry your name; the Store appears to have defaulted to the 'managingEditor' tag which carries the text you see. I can't advise on how you would go about getting an 'itunes:author' tag but I would have expected there to be somewhere you could enter your name.24 inch iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 13 inch Macbook Pro (10.6.8)
