  • I’m quite enjoying the New! Improved! podcasts, and I like to run through the show notes here while I listen, checking out the links to give a visual aspect to the audio. Is it at all possible, then, to have the links in the show notes actually be clickable? Please?

  • iTunes picks up the .ogg version of this episode rather than the .mp3 and thus will not sync to my iPhone.

    I realise that you might expect Linux users not to be using iTunes but I’m not exclusively a Linux user and so far I’ve not managed to get any of your episodes down to my iPhone, which is a bit of a fail :-(

    • We’re working on it! Sorry for all the problems you’ve been having with the podcast RSSS

  • I am confused…I used gpodder to download my podcast and it works great. WIth yours episode 2 and 3 seems to be borken :(
    Episode 2 is a weird BBC download while Episode 3 is a music .
    The feed I use is
    Am I not using the correct one

    Strange thing is that if I listen from the web it works.

  • I cannot find a link to the .ogg version of episode 3. A filesize for the .ogg version is mentioned, but no link. Can you please restore it?

  • Thank you for your cool podcast. But I can not find RSS-feed with OGG files. =(
    Does it exist?

  • Hi, I think your blog is very interesting. I found it via Bing. Will definitely come back again

  • I was just thinking how much i love technology and the internet….it gives us access to so much goodinformation…just like this post..thanks will be back again A+

  • hey! do you know where I can download the myth busters theme song (mp3)?, thanx! Mike.

  • Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.
