DC not displaying full list of episodes

This is for the feed:

[Deleting the URL, since this forum's spam filter isn't letting me put this in here. It's DOUG HENWOOD'S BEHIND THE NEWS PODCAST.]

Google listen wasn't the best, but it displayed and made available for download every single episode from this podcast going back for years.

When I plug the exact same URL into DC, I get 5 episodes!

So what is the deal? Does DoggCatcher just limit your downloading ability unlike other podcast apps?

If so, can someone please recommend an alternative program? I don't need 4 billion options. I just want to listen to whatever podcast I want, whenever I want. That is all.

The publisher of Behind the

The publisher of Behind the News only allows five episodes in that feed at a time. If you click on the feed URL in a browser, you can check it out.

The reason listen works with this is that they must keep an index of historical episodes on their servers.

There isn't any way in DC to get the older episodes, but you can change the 'retain expired' feed option (by pressing the context button (Triangle right of the feed) select feed options, scroll down to & enable retain expired, then press OK) this will cause the episodes that you do download in the future to not get deleted. They will need to manually be deleted once you're done listening to the podcast.

Thanks

Since Listen is basically going defunct, can you recommend a podcast player that does the same? I mean, that keeps an archive?

I can't imagine I'm the only person on the planet who thinks this is a pretty important feature, and I'm a bit disappointed in DC, since it was supposed to be the end-all be-all of podcast players, and the first thing I try to do it doesn't do.

I'm not aware of another app that keeps a index of all episodes from all available podcasts on their servers.
