    I can’t figure out why, but iTunes will not update with this show. I must’ve clicked the update button 10 times by now. Strange. Any ideas why this may be?

    I used to have a similar problem. I decided to keep; using itunes for all of my podcast but not the store. I go to Advanced>Subscribe To Podcast and then enter the feed URL from whatever podcast i am looking at

    I was able to get it just now via iTunes, it was darn slow. But I got it.

    For the Swedish dude who was having trouble making a new account:

    This is very coincidental because I just had to make a new User account after not having done so for years and discovered the same bug. The good news is that I came up with an even easier solution. After the first attempt fails (that is, a new User folder is created but no reference to that user is found in the sidebar or login window), just try to make that exact same account again. It will warn you that a User folder of the same name exists and asks you if you are sure you want to associate that account with the one you are now creating. Say yes and you will finally have the new User account created.

    Well done for being brave and adding an enhanced podcast. I am surprised you decided to call it “eMacCast” though. Things have a habit of getting listed alphabetically on computers so I think I’d have called it “MacCast-E” myself :)

    Just a quick comment. You say June 9th on this podcast, not July :D

    Love the show.
