I have been unable to get the podcast through iTunes recently. The last one that automatically downloaded was the Head of Hydra episode dated 7 March. Anyone else having this issue?

Is this Astronomy related?

My other podcasts download OK. I was wondering if anyone else was having the same issue with the Astronomy magazine podcast. I tried resubscribing with the same information given in the podcast section of the website, but there was no change.

Try sending a Private Message to Karri Farron.  Maybe she can get it corrected.

This issue appears to be happening again. The last podcast I was able to access through iTunes was dated 12 September (the 61 Cygni podcast). All my other podcasts seem to download properly.

Subscribing to the podcast as per http://www.astronomy.com/marketing/2010/09/subscribe-to-podcast just gives me the same list of podcasts available that I already have.

Tried a PM, but got no response.

I too no longer get podcast updates in iTunes. I'd love to see this problem corrected.

There's been no new Astronomy.com podcasts available through iTunes since last September.  I know that Michael Bakich is still producing them, but I'd like to see them return to iTunes where it is more convenient to automatically download.
