I use Souncloud's RSS feed feature to push my podcasts to iTunes, but now that I have new artwork how do I get that to reflect on iTunes? I can't seem to find any information anywhere and it's not in the settings section as far as I can see?

Hi Scott, the image you need to update is the SoundCloud profile picture. iTunes should pick up on this with a bit of a delay.

If this doesn't seem to be the case, try this:
Log in with your account used to submit the podcast to iTunes' Podcasts Connect portal they offer: http://podcastsconnect.apple.com/ and click your podcast to see details, then click Refresh. This triggers the iTunes Store to re-check your feed.

If that also doesn't work and you're still having issues, you'll need to contact iTunes directly to resolve a missing episode. In this instance, you can contact iTunes support by clicking the “Contact Us” link at the bottom, here: https://itunespartner.apple.com/en/podcasts/overview

I did change my profile picture on Soundcloud last year but it's possible that I uploaded a file size too small for iTunes to accept and so it's just never updated. So I've now corrected that and also scheduled the RSS feed for a refresh. Will see if that fixes it.

Thanks for your help.
