This PR resumes two commits.
It references to Issue 68.

First, about two new tags. After digging the web I found two tags that were design to provide the description and the content (for the non-Apple podcast catchers), <description> and <content:encoded> tags respectively.
Both tag's content are the excerpt of the posts, but the difference between them is where they appear: the first is like a description in a list of podcasts as a short descriptive about the episode. The second is the content of when you're inside a podcast episode, with full HTML markup (a common practice between podcasts).
RSS Board - Description Tag
RSS Board - Content Tag
MDN - Why RSS Content Module is Popular - Including HTML Contents

The second commit is about a Jekyll tag. The described RSS podcast tags weren't working correctly (returning blank), so I realized post.excerpt wasn't spitting out anything, and in consequence <itunes:summary> tags were blank too!
After a little research I figured out post.excerpt wasn't being correctly interpreted because of excerpt_separator: "" confguration in _config.yml, altough the documentation says it's right. So I tried "the other official recommendation" and put a someNonsenseString to delimitate the excerpt. So guys, please don't use that thing in your posts :)))

@niltoncms pretty cool! 👍
But I have one doubt: the link that you mentioned about the description tag is related to the rss/channel/description. Do you think that applies to the rss/channel/item tag?

My interpretation is that the description tag is only for the feed (at the rss/channel level). Can you confirm that?

You're GOD DAMN RIGHT @philss ! :DD
The correct link that describes description tag in rss/channel/item level is this, inside the same documentation. Thanks for pointing it out.
