Hi everyone

Hope you are well.

I have been hitting my head against a wall for the past 5 days and i literally can't find anyone who knows anything about podcasting at all - or any online help that can help me with my problem!

I have come to a dead end and I am struggling because all of my promotion has announced that my podcast will be launching on Tuesday.

My problem is that iTunes is rejecting my feed (404) - Feedvalidaor is saying that my feed is valid despite the "title not matching the channel title"

I am at wits end and dont know enough about podcasting or programming to solve this. I would just like to pay someone to find the problem and fix it.

Would anyone be willing?

The website is wordpress based and i am using podpress.
My feed is : http://www.songwritingbusiness.com/category/sbpodcast/feed


PS. please email me at jon at songwritingbusiness dot com

After having a look at the feed, I noticed the following errors:

1) The PubDate field is blank and MUST be filled out.

2) In your iTunes extension, Subtitle is a required field and has been left blank.

3) In your iTunes extension, the New Feed URL field should only be used if the podcast is being moved to a new location, otherwise this field should not be used.

4) The title for your Image should match the Feed's title. This isn't an absolute requirement, though, and won't keep the feed from being picked up on iTunes. The first two items, however, will.
