I've just upgraded to 2.1 and when adding my podcasts found I could not create a subscription for a feed which does not have any episodes currently available. Is there a reason for this? I think it used to work. The reason I want it is that BBC podcasts are "seasonal" - they run for a while, then have a break. For example "Analysis" (http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/radio4/analysis/rss.xml) is not "on air" at the moment, but is sure to start again soon. I want to subscribe so that when they restart the next series I don't miss an episode.
Could the ability to subscribe to currently inactive podcasts be added (or put back)?
