Update subscriptions which have expired by virtue of being ignored for five or more days

iTunes will stop updating a podcast if you have not listened to at least one of its episodes in five days. This script will batch-update every podcast subscription so you don't have to manually update each one individually.

I have posted instructions on how to create a launchd agent to run this script automatically and invisibly in the background to ensure that your Podcasts are always updated.

Possible iTunes bug (July 17, 2014): iTunes 11 may still report a particular feed as not updating (with a "!") even though recent episodes have been downloaded via the script; you will have to manually tell iTunes to continue updating the feed by clicking the "!" button.
