Podcast-Illustration-0121This week's episode we actually recorded a day early, so all the amazing things which happened (or didn't happen!) today will be discussed next week. Anyway, we spend a lot of time chatting about the recent war of virtual pet releases, other cool games of the week, relevant news, and then a big long discussion on the iOS 7 game controllers we played with.

Don't forget to shoot us emails with any questions, feedback, or anything else relevant or irrelevant to podcast@toucharcade.com. We read 'em all, even if they don't make it into the podcast.

As always, you can listen to us with the links below... And if you like what you hear, please subscribe and/or drop us a review in iTunes. Much appreciated!

    Again not on iTunes. What's going on?

      For those of you having trouble with iTunes, Downcast, Instacast, and the rest, I just discovered that if you search for TouchArcade to add it like a new podcast, a second feed exists that has the two most recent episodes. They must have had some hiccup with the way they published it, but it seems the old feed isn't good anymore.

  • falco

    No podcast on itunes ??

  • HandsomeLuke

    Would be nice if you said why this is not showing up on iTunes Eli is getting lazy he's off going to Zelda concerts and getting his parents to white reviews for him.

  • Zach Williams

    No iTunes podcast again for the second week in a row.

        The podcast doesn't seem to be showing up in iTunes - the RSS feed and the direct link are both working fine though.

      • Zach Williams

        Ok, this is weird. It wasn't showing up at all last week, even when searching for it and the direct iTunes link led to a "failed" pop up. Just checked it again in Podcasts.app, and it still wasn't showing new episodes available. Searched TA Show and it was showing the two most recent episodes so I manually downloaded them and it started a new podcast subscription with just those two most recent episodes. Something strange is going on but at least it's working now.

      • Zach Williams

        And this is what happens when clicking the direct iTunes link from Safari.app or Toucharcade.app from my devices.

      • JJE McManus

        Yup the podcast app just stopped showing new episodes. Deleted and re-subscribed and all was well again. So very weird.

      • driscoll14

        So I unsubscribed in the Podcasts app and then did a search and now the last two weeks episodes are coming up.

      • xx99

        Your feed split into a second one. New subscribers will have no problem but existing subscribers need to search again and add the new TA feed. It will show up as a second subscription in your podcasting app of choice.

    Don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but this isn't showing up on iTunes.

  • Timobrow

    Second week it hasn't been on ITunes for me as well. Could it have something to do with the podcasts app?

    • Timobrow

      Link isn't working either :/

  • Tommy

    I have no idea what happened last week, but at least I see the podcast feed now... except I see two. One that has episodes 115-129 and another one (130 and 131). I have no idea what the heck happened, but I'm glad I can listen to the show during commuting again 🙂

  • oooooomonkey

    Why does everyone use iTunes? I just use the direct link to listen.

    • Zach Williams

      Because a lot of people listen while commuting and don't want to have to stream it. Having it on your device also lets you pick up where you left off.

    • xx99

      I use Downcast so I can listen to it at a faster speed. For what it's worth, the intro is badass at 1.5x speed (which shows as 2x in Downcast).

  • mudd

    The TA podcasts have stopped showing up in my Downcast app as well.

  • Zaraf

    Ok so for those of you who can't get this on iTunes, as mentioned before by some people, here is the solution:

    Unsubscribe your current Toucharcade show feed, search for it in iTunes and resubscribe. This will fix it.

    For some reason, the old feed split off and is no longer updated. Just follow the new feed.

    • JJE McManus

      I did some checking. The podcast is now being filtered through a high security DNS router that goes by the name
      Which according to the website "shields against sunspots and Jared's Mom"
      So nothing to worry about.

    Hey guys, I ran into a problem like this with my podcast & iTunes when I used HTTPS instead of just HTTP in the link url. I can't tell if that is the case with your site, but something to check.
