Is the date from the Truman Administration the Release Date or the Date Added date?
If it is the release date, and assuming that you found the podcast via the iTunes Store, look up the podcast in the store and see what it shows as the release date. There is a possibility that the podcast producer isn't filling in a release date and iTunes is show the time zero date.
New podcasts are check for every hour... and the system clock is correct.
The early dates (and the "Truman administration" comment was meant figuratively) are release dates, and some are months old even though there have been several newer podcasts since that date.
I believe that the problem might relate to the fact that some of the older podcasts have the "blue dot" indicating that I have not listened to them. It appears that iTunes sees that, and, as a result, fails to download anything newer.
Might you have any furhter thoughts?
