iTunes rejecting podcast feed over subtitle

I recently created a new podcast at work but have had trouble getting iTunes to approve it. Every time I submit my RSS feed, they reject it on the basis of "the feed contains test content."

I've gone back and forth with Apple Support and they eventually told me that the issue was that "the is the same as your " and to "Please work with SoundCloud if necessary to change the subtitle or remove it completely."

Obviously, I don't know how to do this or how to edit the XML feed to remove the subtitle. I also don't know who to contact at SoundCloud to help with such matters.

Any suggestions?

Hi @BAxelrod3,

We've forwarded your report to our engineers. Unfortunately, our resources to work on podcasting related issues on the backend are currently limited, thus I cannot promise when and how this can be addressed. 😕
