Recently our podcast hasn't been playing on itunes from the podcast store/search section. The RSS feeds through correctly and you can search and find every episode, and if you are subscribed, it works perfectly in the "my podcast" section.
However, if you were trying to listen for the first time (ie not subscribed), it will not load. The play wheel spins endlessly (the little loading circle that spins around the play button that replaces the track number when you click play on a track):
I first had this problem when I upgraded to the newest version of itunes on PC at work (12/10/15), and then tested at home on version 11.4 on Mac and both are having the same problem. I also tested on a friends mac (but I don't know his version)--it's also having the same problem.
Two things to note:
1. Weirdly, Episode 1 still plays from the store/search function.
2. All episodes were playing from store/search without issue last week.
Any fix would be greatly appreciated, because while I know about the subscribing and using the podcasts library section, I feel like there are people out there less invested in this project who might not figure that one out so easily.
