iTunes may prevent Bibliotech subscribers from downloading new episodes

A possible problem has surfaced with iTunes that may prevent subscribers of the Bibliotech podcast from downloading new episodes (latest episode being episode 26). Moving the Dquarium website from its former home to Tumblr required us to contact Apple and update the location of the RSS feed. Apple made the changes seamlessly in the background and the podcast ID for the show remained the same on Apple’s end. iTunes sees the new episodes, but may not automatically download the new episodes. If this happens, please unsubscribe to the podcast in iTunes, delete the entry for the podcast and any episodes (under Library »> Podcasts) and resubscribe to Bibliotech. Doing this will ensure that any new episodes will be downloaded as it will update the feed address that the iTunes client may be holding onto and reset it. 

Alternatively, the direct RSS feed for Bibliotech is the following and can be used with any pod-catcher program (including iTunes):

We apologize for any inconvenience.
