Podcast RSS not submitting to Apple Podcasts Connect - but all tests suggest feed is fine

Hi all,

I've created a blog on a website to host a podcast. I've created the RSS feed (https://jenny-young-ry38.squarespace.com/clswpodcast?format=rss) and yet when I try and submit to Apple Podcasts Connect is just times out.

Has anyone else come across this, and do you know the fix?

The RSS feed itself seems fine. I've run it through a few third party RSS feed validators, and they come back with green ticks. I can even manually import the show into the Apple Podcasts app with no problem - it pulls in artwork, description and the media. I also had a go at submitting to Stitcher and it submitted fine and is now there on the Stitcher site (https://www.stitcher.com/show/the-creative-life-story-work-podcast)

I'm at a bit of a loss - many thanks!

In case anyone else stumbles across this, the problem was at Apple's end rather than the RSS / squarespace end.... I solved the problem by using an incognito window to open Podcast Connect. 

Was there something specific you did in Podcast Connect?

When Apple implemented the new changes weeks ago, Podcast Connect didn't work for a day and that week's episode did not did not show up on Apple Podcasts until several hours later. Podcast Connect has been working like normal and the following weeks were back to normal; however, last week my show didn’t show up until the evening (all episodes are scheduled for the early AM). Podcast Connect showed it as "published" and it populated in Apple Podcasts on iPhones running an old iOS. This is so frustrating and, at this point, I'm getting myself worked up before each release. 

Thanks ahead of time.
