I am the owner of a new podcast, Changed by God to Make a difference for God, (RSS feed: The podcast downloads and plays fine on my Mac Pro and MacBook Pro (10.8/iTunes 11) but will not download to apple's podcast app on either my iPhone 5 (ios 6) or ipad 2 (ios 6). The podcast shows up in the itunes store and all the descriptors are there, but I keep getting a "download failed" error message with an invitation to retry. I've been in touch with Apple tech support and they think it's something in the xml doc.


I originally created the podcast using Lemonzdream's Podcast Maker, which is a bit dated, and so just now tried Feeder. I deleted all the files off my webhosting server (iPage) before I uploaded the new files but still get the same results. I deleted the podcasts app and reinstalled, all to no avail. I've tried downloading the podcast using ATT's network instead of my APEx LAN and that didn't work either. I'm going to wait 24 hours to see if things get refreshed on the itunes store but I saw that my slightly new description of the podcast was appearing in the itunes store just now.


So I'm baffled. Any suggestions?
