    I am trying to create a RSS feed from an outside source that we are pulling into our website.  When I create the rss feed it is giving me this error.

     Server Error in '/' Application.
    Specified cast is not valid.
    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during
    the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace
    for more information about the error and where it originated in the
    Exception Details: System.InvalidCastException: Specified cast is not valid.
    Source Error:

    Hello Zach,

    We are not able to replicate this issue locally. Most likely there is something in the feed causing this unusual behavior. Can you provide us some steps to reproduce and also what is the project version you are using?
