My soundcloud rss feed isn't working on Itunes! Am I doing something wrong or is it Itunes? Please help a brotha out.

Hey.... brotha ;-)

Sorry about the delay in responding here - The weekend brought over a good bunch of new conversations to the help forum.

Now, let's see. I've looked into that and it seems that you've put in links in both "New feed location" and "Stats service URL prefix", which has created a loop and currently breaks your RSS feed. The New feed location field should only be used for when you decide to move to a different host (i.e., other then SoundCloud to upload future episodes). It enables your listeners to still download past episodes. Hence, for as long as you stick to SoundCloud, please leave this field empty.

Same with the "Stats service URL prefix" - this should be left empty at this time, unless you have a Podtrac account set up and are 100% of the URL that you want to put in there.

Hope that makes sense. Long story short - all you need to do is sign in to your SoundCloud account, then head over to http://soundcloud.com/settings/extra and adjust this.
