The Pendant site is updated every time we have new episodes.This means changing the web pages and updating the podcast feed so that iTunes can download the show.
Then, everything has been checked and confirmed, and the episodes are ready to download into iTunes.
Now, here's where things get a bit murky...
On the top of iTunes, there's a list of "containers." Music, Podcasts, etc. Here, in the Podcasts container, is where the episodes are available immediately.
If you click on the Podcasts container, and then click the "Refresh" button on the podcast of your choice, iTunes will grab any new episodes (if it hasn't already).
Again, this is verified to be working BEFORE any new episode announcement is made.
iTunes also has another container, labeled "iTunes Store." Please, think of the iTunes Store as something completely separate from the rest of iTunes (as it really is).
All of our Pendant shows are in the iTunes Store. However, It can take a day for a new episode to appear in the iTunes Store.
So, again, BIG difference between the Podcasts container in iTunes (which is working and ready before anyone is alerted), and the iTunes Store, which updates when Apple gets around to it.
One further point on this.
If you are on an iOS device (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, etc.), and you click the link to "Get More Episodes" of a podcast, this does NOT refresh the podcast feed. It takes you to the iTunes Store (so you'll be hit by Apple's delay). Sorry, but we can't fix that.
However, you can always listen to new episodes immediately directly from the show's page here on our website.
