Good but Podcast Feed Problems

I've really been enjoying this podcats and I even went back to the beginning and have started listening to the earlier shower but but the last few days there have been some amazingly not great handling of the podcast feed. Every time I open itunes this podcast has refreshed and all the episodes are back in my list as un-listened to. Before you think that I am incapable of using itunes I would like to point out that none of my other podcasts are doing this and I have been listening to podcasts for years now. Whatever has changed in the last few days with how you are handling the podcast feed is not working! Please go back to whatever you were doing before so that I don't have dozens of podcasts in my unplayed list that I actually have listened to!

Really disappointed.

I was excited to download this podcast. Played the April 16th episode, then unsubscribed and deleted the podcast. I was hoping to learn about the food industry, not listen to alt-right opinions.

Great Show!

I listen to this show every week! Host Katy Keiffer brings on some great guests (like Tom Philpott, one of my ultimate favorite environmental writers!) and always has great discussions about contemporary food issues. Her show is an hour or so long but the time passes quickly - I'd definitely recommend listening!
