(Specific) Podcast Bug

For the last few weeks one podcast I listen to no longre works on the mobile or web versions.

It is fine on Google Podcasts and can play "directly" from the RSS feed:

I guess it could be Astiga is being blocked like the RTE ones?

    It turns out that this podcast sends clients through a lot of 'redirects'. When you request a URL the server can say "this is moved, get it from here: x" where "x" is a different URL. In this case this happens six times, whereas Astiga is set to only allow five redirects (it's limited for obvious reasons - a misconfigured URL could infinitely redirect).

    I've increased the limit - should work now.

    Brilliant, that works.
