THE ORPHEUS PROTOCOL IS UNDER ATTACK.
The ORPHEUS Protocol has been replaced in iTunes by an unrelated show called "Moron Gaming." The normal channels of support are useless. Refreshing the RSS URL through Podcasts Connect doesn't work; it's automatically replaced with the "Moron Gaming" RSS, regardless of platform.
They've been receiving reports of this issue from multiple users for over 9 days. They have responded to NO ONE.
I spent most of the last 2 days on the phone with Apple, and finally spoke with a higher-up supervisor. Even she is unwilling to contact the Podcasts Support team (the group solely responsible for fixing this issue), but suggested that I contact everyone I can in order to flood the Podcasts Support team with emails and negative feedback via the Apple Feedback form. If enough people contact them, the company itself will take notice of the failures of the Podcast Team.
WE NEED YOUR HELP.
I'm providing links to copy/pasteable forms below, along with the places they are to be sent. I'm begging every single listener, fan, and friend to contact Apple via the following two methods.
THEY CAN'T STOP THE SIGNAL. WE'RE GOING TO GET ORPHEUS BACK.
This form (into which you should insert your name where indicated) is to email to:

Thank you, one and all, for helping raise awareness of this issue. You are all truly esteemed operatives of ORPHEUS.
