    I use iTunes to download all the New England Patriots podcasts so I can listen to them on my iPod. I noticed that it wasn't working since 11/20. It seems that if you subscribe directly to some shows like PFW in Progress it works okay (was able to get Tuesday's show) but others such as Press Conferences are still not working. The message I get on the ones not working by the way is "New England Patriots Podcasts does not appear to be a valid Podcast URL"

    I inquired with the Pats webmaster but he just gave me a vague reply about looking into it.

    Yes I know that you can go directly to patriots.com and listen/watch any show but I do enjoy the convenience of iTunes.

    Anyone experiencing the same thing or figure out how to get around it?

    Yes I am having the same problem. I emailed itunes. You can still download the WEEI stuff thru their feed.

    I listen to the PFW In Progress show.
    I notice that sometimes it takes a long time to get the auto-download.

    You can go to the Website and get the previous day's show:
    Go to patriots.com
    Go to audio archive
    There is a list of shows - hit Download.
    Then double click on the downloaded file, and it will load in iTunes.
    It won't load in podcasts, but as the 2-hour song "New England Patriots"
    Go to Playlist Recently Added, and it will play.

    I very commonly get PFW two days or so later through iTunes, so download directly when I want yesterday's show. Usually by the end of the week, everything is there.

    I got yesterday's show that way this morning for the commute.

    You realize that you need to click the "refresh" button to get updated podcasts right? Patriots podcasts are usually up within an hour and often faster; certainly not a day.

    Anyway, it appears that the issue has been cleared up and is working properly again.
