I think we started off with the feed being 20 and only podcasts. And then we changed it to 100 and included everything. itunes looks at the feed and ignores stuff that doesn't have an mp3 file. So they are getting 100 things, but skipping the stuff that doesn't have mp3 files.
I think the thing to do might be to set the number to 200 and have the feed be podcasts only. So we will then be set for the next 100 podcasts. Maybe by then we will have learned some things and have better solutions.
Does this sound like a smart thing or a dumb thing?
And, I have to confess, I am just making wild guesses here because I know almost nothing about this stuff. Kane has been taking care of everything.

There seems to be some other filter in place, perhaps...through some arrangement with Apple?
