Could not add some podcasts
Some podcasts could not be added to your list:

This bug has been around since at least 2014. On a swedish radio website someone noticed the bug and someone else explained that it probably occurred because the podcast contained episodes from BEFORE 1970 (the UNIX beginning of time).
I am quite sure that "Desert Island Discs" (the aforementioned podcast) contains episodes older than 1970.
This is a "fatal" bug, i.e. that it renders the podcasts unloadable.
I suggest increasing the severity of this issue.
This RSS feed only contains the latest 300 episodes, so doesn't go back as far as 1970s we have archive series that go back that far.
We also have a new rss feed from the one quoted below (the old one was redirected). However it still won't be added.
Looking in the Gpodder Browser gpodder.org I can see that the Gpodder feed has got stuck in March last year, however the rss feed it is using is uptodate. How do we get it to display the latest episodes which are all in the RSS feed?
Hi - we have an outstanding audience query on this could someone from gPodder please respond to this tiicket. Is it being investigated?

Yes, it is being investigated, but as this mostly done in free time, there's no schedule or planned release for when this will be fixed.
This problem seems to have been fixed since
I downloaded the last version of gpodder and couldn't reproduce the problem anymore.
Can someone please confirm?
Hi - I downloaded the latest version of gpodder but when I tried to subscribe to Desert Island Discs the app crashed (several times). So I'm unable to test.
