No matter what I try, I cannot get any podcast utility to successfully download older podcasts.  I've registered and tried various methods, such as embedding the User ID and Password in the URL, like this: https://UserName:[email protected]/registered-members/rs...

However, regardless what I try, I get a variant of this error message on all podcast utilities:

"failed to connect to (port 80) after 30000ms:isConnected failed: ECONNREFUSED (Connection refused)"

I'm a bit frustrated now, as I've spent a half a day trying to figure this out without success.

I love this podcast and really want to listen to some of the earlier episodes while I drive, so downloading them as a podcast is key.

I am using: Android 4.4.2 with both Pocket Casts and Podcast Addict apps.  Tried connecting over WiFi and cellular, just in case it was my provider.

Any guidance would be GREATLY appreciated!

Not exactly guidance, but I'm having the same issue. As far as I can tell it just started today. I hope it's temporary.

I contacted customer support and it looks like they've fixed the issue. Hooray!
