 Here is the original traceback source before it was tidied up below: Traceback (most recent call last): ... File "apprise\Apprise.py", line 248, in notify File "path\to\markdown\__init__.py", line 470, in markdown File "path\to\markdown\__init__.py", line 338, in convert UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0x92 in position 3078: ordinal not in range(128). -- Note: Markdown only accepts unicode input!  Apprise should operate similar to markdown and convert everything to unicode prior to working with the string. This will fix compatibility with markdown and fix any other compatibility issues down the road as well.

 Will close this ticket as i decided this shouldn't be solved in apprise. Just as markdown expects the developer to convert everything ahead of time to unicode safe format, apprise should operate the same way and expect the same. The bug originates from nzb-notifiy, so that is where it should be resolved. A ticket has already been open here.
