      Check your feed directly -- are your show notes cut off in your RSS as
      well?

      If your RSS is "full post," then something did go wrong at the iTunes/iPod
      end. It might be encoding or HTML (I think iTunes wants all HTML
      stripped). If your RSS is truncated itself (i.e. the <description> and
      <itunes:summary> fields both show only the first {x} characters of each
      entry), you need to adjust your RSS generator. I think the default for
      Movable Type or WordPress might be to generate excerpts, not full text.
