How to diagnose "Download Failed 5 times, giving up "?

The event log is empty. How do I figure out which feed the failure is from? Thanks

Run the event log the after

Run the event log right after an episode from the feed fails to download.

If the log is still blank> from the the feeds tab> press on the feed with the download issue> press on the the context menu button for the episode failing to download (3 Dot Hamburger Icon "Right of the episode title)
A dialog box will open and an error entry should be present> press on it and see the description of the problem.

Next> check the feed URL with this site "Feed Validation Service" https://validator.w3.org/feed/
It will list any issues with feed.

Contact the publisher and let them know the problem you're experiencing, based on the issues listed from the validation results page. (Copy and past the URL) in an email to the publisher.

Them you, bit I cannot figure out which feed is having the problem. The event log is blank and the error notification is added to the Android notification bar at 5am when I'm alseep.
Any advice on how to find the erroneous feed?

From the the feeds tab>

Scroll down and press on the feed with the "Red" number of new episodes indicator (Top Right of the Feed Thumbnail) "Tile View" or (Right of the Feed Title) "List View" of the particular feed/podcast

Change from Tile & List Views (On the Feeds Tab> Press the "Tile View" Icon (Top Right of the Screen)
