Sorry about this. It’s a bug that was introduced in 13.1 beta 2, and never got fixed before Apple shipped 13.1 to all customers.
I’m still trying to find a workaround. https://twitter.com/realdlnorman/status/1178511627471089664
Overcast now supports ad purchasing for Apple Podcasts’ new top-level categories added this summer: Fiction, History, and True Crime.
(I’d been waiting to support them until a lot of podcasts had self-identified into them. Otherwise, ads would be matched against too little.) https://twitter.com/IanMikutel/status/1174180275032666116
Yes, sorry about that. Still investigating, but it appears to be an issue at my host, @linode. Fortunately, this means it’s out of my hands () and should fix itself soon. https://twitter.com/chrismanbrown/status/1169639546935336960

Today’s update brings longer clips, better discovery, and more: https://marco.org/2019/07/21/overcast-summer-update
No. But I’ll tell you one of the boring things!
I finally have the database columns needed to allow separate download and sorting preferences for each podcast. https://twitter.com/timstringer/status/1143687794843275265
