    On iTunes, do you have a new podcast name? Latest show is May 1. If you’ve uploaded to same show, it’s not showing in US iTunes store. I’ve subscribed to one with white logo, which is now empty, black logo has 20 videos, latest May 1, T.E.N. logo has last 9 episodes, latest May 1.

    • Hi Mark,

      Thanks for reaching out. We’ve checked and it’s there. iTunes does sometimes take a while to upload. Can you referesh your feed and see what happens?

        I didn’t try refresh as I went to the iTunes store and it wasn’t there. Oddly, I hit refresh within my podcasts in iTunes, and then it showed up and started downloading. Now I go to iTunes store and it is there, albeit only with the black logo. I am subscribed (via iTunes on my mac) and it usually starts automatically downloading when I open iTunes on friday or saturday. (I’m an oddball, prefer to download podcasts on my Mac, I still sync my iOS devices w/Mac, not wifi, I manually add podcasts to iphone/ipad. This prevents using too much cell data.) …Ah, well, one of Apples oddities. Next time I’ll try refresh first.

        …Are you just using the one w/black logo for all your podcasts now?
