Apple podcast gone off the deep end?

Ever since I have moved from my venerable Intel iMac to a new M1 iMac, I’ve been cursing Podcast. First, it refused to recognize my paid feed to a podcast I have been subscribing to for years. It simply tells me it can’t find the server. Safari does… Then there’s the problem with feeds no longer updating properly. But what really raises my temperature is the mania for Podcast suddenly becoming the active app, and displaying “can’t connect right now”. I know it can’t connect ever if I choose “Browse”. I have no idea why this is the case and it frustrates me.

Getting this off my chest added years to my longevity :slight_smile:
