PBS Newshour D/ls all multiple times a day

I've been listening to PBS NewsHour for many years. www.pbs.org/newshour/feeds/rss/podcasts/show

Starting in the last couple of weeks Doggcatcher has been D/L-ing 15-20 previous episodes as new, sometines more than 1ce a day. I've tried changeing the "Episode Itentifier," and checking/unchecking "Make Filename Unique." Although I can't guarantee I tried all combinations, I've I have changed them about 8 times.

Has anyone else reported this, and provided a solution? :-)

Thanks

PBS NewsHour Feed Issue

Checked the Feed Validation Service https://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=www.pbs.org%2Fnewshour%2Ffee...
There seems to be a problem with how the date is written on the feed URL and that could cause the app to be confused when episodes are published.
Contact PBS NewsHour support at (appsupport@newshour.org) tell them problem you're experiencing and refer the above validation service URL, it will describe the issue with the feed.

"Recommendations
This feed is valid, but interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendations.

line 13, column 8: News & Politics is an obsolete iTunes category or sub-category [help]

line 25, column 54: Implausible date: Sun, 01 Aug 2021 22:13:55 -0400 [help]
