Trying to get the latest podcast and the one before it...itunes is not allowing it.

Keep saying retry - retry. No luck.

Is all up and good?

Just deleted and am now downloading episodes again on my windows phone. Maybe an iTunes temporary thing?

Maybe unsubscribe and resubscribe?

Tried that...no luck. Will try to dl later this evening.

My iPhone, iTouch and iPad will not pull the episodes.

I have had this same problem for months! I'm very tech savvy and can't figure out how to fix it.

All other podcasts download fine.

I've resorted to downloading it on my PC thru iTunes then syncing to my phone. But that's such a pain.

No logical reason why it would work on the computer thru iTunes and not on the phone direct.

Very strange...iPhone5 FINALLY let me DL EP56. But still not EP57.

iTouch is gen4...and runs older iOS. It won't DL either EP.

I'll try the PC iTunes DL and just sync them to my iDevices.

iPad2...runs same iOS as my iPhone5. NOPE, won't DL either EP.

Likely a Podcast App glitch with iOS 7. Hope they fix it soon. Just makes it less convenient.

I played with different toggles in the podcast app settings too and no different...same error.

No logical reason at all John! But the podcast is worth the extra little hassle of downloading and manually syncing.

I'm sure it's something on my end but I just can't figure it out, no matter how many different tricks I try.

Logic and IT...never a happy marriage! LOL

I did the PC thing and they DL'ed just fine. Then a manual sync to the iTouch and iPhone.

ALL GOOD! Hopefully next iOS update will fix the podcast bug.

Apparently this is indeed a ios bug - and has been reported by many. Our provider was well aware of it.

So just an update...

I found a workaround for my iPhone5...I paid for an app called "Downcast". And it's now letting me download the Intercot Insider Live podcasts directly to my iDevices less using the PC first and syncing.

Sooo for now happiness has been restored. BTW, app was $2.99 and got great reviews for podcast management.

AND I totally deleted the canned apple podcast app. No need for **** apps that don't work on my iDevices. :)
