So I just discovered something kinda cool.
iCatcher is the podcast app I'm using on iOS again because there are zero server-side shenanigans and the app has just about every feature you'd ever need.
Because the MoeFactz feed was fubar, I found the MP3 link and used iCatcher's web browser to pull it in. When I did, I was able to associate the MP3 with the MoeFactz podcast.
Then, when I refreshed the feed, it saw that I already downloaded the necessary file.
