Error updating one feed

Hello! First, thanks so much for your work, I've used DoggCatcher for years without issue.

I am having trouble updating a single feed:
http://feeds.packetpushers.net/datanauts/

On any local network, I receive the following "Feed update failure" error message:
"org.apache.harmony.xml.ExpatParser$ParseException: At line 15, column 41: mismatched tag"

feedvalidator.org says it's valid, although I'm not sure if the warnings are relevant:
http://www.feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Ffeeds.packetpush...

And DoggCatcher's "Feed diagnostics" also reports no problems.

I contacted the feed publishers; they sent me to feedvalidator.org and confirmed that nobody else has reported this issue. Could it be a problem with the way DoggCatcher is interpreting the feed?

Datanauts Feed

Currently not experiencing any network connection issues with the feed on three different devices, for a network connection issue (See FAQ article "Why I'm getting "An error occurred" notification on the app's Subscribe screen tabs" http://www.doggcatcher.com/node/6597) follow the recommended solutions to see if that resolves the problem you're experiencing.

The only other problem with the feed is an issue with duplicate filenames (See FAQ article "Why does my feed/podcast subscription episodes being deleted and re-downloaded" - http://www.doggcatcher.com/node/6613) I updated the post to include the "Packet Pushers Datanauts" feed.

Man, if the feed is fine for you, I must be going crazy.

It happens to me on multiple networks, and the feed diagnostics did not report any issues to me (like duplicate filenames). I deleted the subscription and tried to resubscribe, but receive the same error message as in the OP when it tries to preview the episodes.

If it works on your end, it's obviously my device. Do I need to reset app data or delete the app to try again, or is there another less destructive option I could try? Thanks!

Maybe the problem could be a similar to a Handshake Exception issue on your device

I have the exact same issue.

I have the exact same issue. Been trying to add any feed from their site for two weeks. Doesn't matter which one I try.

Packet Pushers

Oh, interesting, you're right. All Packet Pushers feeds return the same error when I search them in the Subscribe area. Unfortunately, none of those links have resolved the issue on my end.
