I am a novice in publishing podcasts, and recently noticed the status of my podcast on iTunes' Podcasts Connect is set to "Deleted". Nothing has been published from my podcast since September, despite me publishing to my podcast hub. There is no info as to why and I have not been notified.

I have tried to figure out why, and what to do about it, and I can only find info that is not relevant (that the content is illegal etc, which is not the case). I have also validated the feed. The only other thing I am guessing could be the problem is that the language is set to English, whereas the podcast itself is in Norwegian.

So, two questions:

  1. Could the language be the problem here? If so, how do I change it? I couldn't find info in Squarespace (my site's hosting provider) or on help in Podcast Connect.
  2. How do I go about finding out why my podcast has been deleted?

I would be grateful for any tips, as I want to get the podcast back on track spreading the word on brain research for kids.
