The XML feeds are simply too complicated. We need to be able to adjust these. You should have a simple "optimize for podcasts" option in an XML rendering dialog in the dashboard.
It has been a real pain the neck to get podcasts to work correctly in podcatchers, especially iTunes. Asking us to go through feedburner is ridiculous. RSS stands for REALLY SIMPLE syndication and you guys make it a REAL PAIN. Troubleshooting can take days and days with so many layers of complexity and the fact that iTunes does not let you refresh the feed to the iTunes Marketplace whenever you need to test something.
PLEASE FIX THIS! I just want to pull my hair out on how complicated it is to simply syndicate a podcast. This is not what they had in mind when they came up with RSS !!
