XML Parsing Error: Feed Not Well Formed (2 posts)

    I've got a WordPress network set up.

    My feed here: http://www.netmix.com/category/podcast/feed, is working when I navigate to it.

    This feed: http://netmix.com/?feed=podcast, has the XML parsing error.

    XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
    Location: http://netmix.com/?feed=podcast
    Line Number 9, Column 59: xmlns:itunes="http://www.itunes.com/dtds/podcast-1.0.dtd"xmlns:georss="http://www.georss.org/georss" xmlns:geo="http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#" xmlns:ymaps="http://api.maps.yahoo.com/Maps/V2/AnnotatedMaps.xsd">
    -----------------------------------------------------------------^

    I tried to add the feed to feedburners and got this error:

    The URL does not appear to reference a valid XML file. We encountered the following problem: Error on line 9: Element type "rss" must be followed by either attribute specifications, ">" or "/>".

    When I try to add the first feed, http://netmix.com/category/podcast/feed/ I get this:

    The URL does not appear to reference a valid XML file. We encountered the following problem: Error on line 242: Element type "enclosure" must be followed by either attribute specifications, ">" or "/>".

    I'm using the "Podcasting" plug-in.

    Not sure how to fix this. Is this in the Podcasting plug-in? Or is it in a WordPress RSS file?

    Any ideas?

    I found in wp-includes the following, which I think is directly related.

    <rss version="2.0"
    	xmlns:content="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/content/"
    	xmlns:wfw="http://wellformedweb.org/CommentAPI/"
    	xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/"
    	xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom"
    	xmlns:sy="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/syndication/"
    	xmlns:slash="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/slash/"
    	<?php do_action('rss2_ns'); ?>

    I think the last line is calling the Podcasting plugin for the link to iTunes, but it's malformed. Not sure if that's a Podcasting issue or if this do_action can be fixed.
