I just bought a psp, and to my disappointment the rss feature gives some problems with the PA podcast rss. It picks up everything fine up until The Broodax Imperiate (05/04/2007). I did some digging, and the reason that it no longer works from that point on is because of a change in the format of the pubDate.
Before it broke, the date was formatted as follows:
Fri, 04 May 2007 11:01:00 PST
All new podcasts after The Broodax Imperiate have the pubDate formatted like this:
09 May 2007 11:01:00 PST
Not a big difference, but it seems to break it for the psp. Should be a simple fix though, so hopefully whoever is in charge of the PA podcast rss feed can fix it now (should I crosspost the fix to the bugs section of the forum? Not sure if whoever is in charge of rss reads this section).
In the meantime, I have quickly created a script that parses the rss feed and outputs a psp compatible rss feed. The link to this script is:http://ultimatebirding.com/padlc.php
So just go there on your psp, and it will prompt you to save the feed, and then you can access all podcasts from the rss menu.
Hopefully this is helpful to someone, and if there are any problems, please let me know.

I'll ping them to see what they say.
Sony has provided document specifications for rss feeds for the psp here: http://www.playstation.com/manual/psp/rss/en/spec.html
They don't mention any restriction to the pubDate format, so definitely a bug in the psp's rss parser.
