My feed gets these errors, but they are incorrect

feed: https://drcraigjohnson.org/audio-sermons/?podcast

Additionally, my feed validates with XML. I am using the WordPress Blubrry
podcast plugin and there are many complaints in the blubrry forum about
wrong errors. 
<https://forum.blubrry.com/index.php/topic,6656.msg20125.html#msg20125>  An
alternate validator,  https://podba.se/   was suggested.


This feed does not validate.

improved by implementing the following recommendations.
