    I usually get your podcast off i-tunes but I’m not seeing it there. Plus I downloaded it directly but can’t find the file or folder. Any suggestions?

    • Brian Combs says:

      I just checked and I’m seeing it there right now (11am Saturday morning central time). My understanding is that iTunes is having some issues with their podcast feed, so maybe that’s it.

      I also tested the direct download link above, and it seems to be working for me.

      • tony says:
