Podcast blog post information on iTunes is cut off with HTML code?

    I’m currently using a free blog to host my podcast episodes. I’m also using feedburner to get each post onto iTunes and everything works perfectly: I can update and download episodes with no problem. However, when I check the episode information on iTunes (or other podcasting apps), it always gives me a cut-off message seen here:

    I’m assuming there’s something with my wordpress site that’s causing the text to cut off and show a bunch of html code. Does anyone know what may be causing this? I’m using the Oxygen theme if that’s of any help. Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is thepixelbot.wordpress.com.

    Hi Jed,

    The img code in your RSS feed is related to how WordPress.com counts views on your blog, to track your blog’s stats. That code is added automatically to your feed, so there isn’t a way to block it, unfortunately.

    Thanks for the reply. Is there any way I can work around it? I’d like to be able to have viewers see all the text in the information. It looks horrible with that img code blocking the text =(
