subscribing to the pop life podcast via itunes

i'm really kicking myself for ever having taken down our podcast from the itunes music store. i've submitted the new feed well over a week ago and i have no idea whether or not apple is going to do anything with it. however, as i mentioned, for those of you don't want to go through the trouble of getting more software to subscribe, i just found out that you can still subscribe to the feed in itunes even though we're not listed. here's a thorough explanation of the process, but it's pretty simple. just click on the advanced menu in itunes, then select "subscribe to podcast...". a dialog box will pop up asking you to type in the url of the feed, at which point you can type in:

and then click ok. then you're all set. for those of you who are subscribing via the old xml feed, well, i've decided that since it takes exactly zero effort from me to maintain it, i'll just keep it going, so you don't need to do anything.

i just went through some discussion threads and there's some talk that it is taking apple close to two weeks to get podcasts up in their directory, so like i said before, i'll continue to keep you updated on the status of us being listed on the itunes podcast directory.
