  1. It seems as though we had a hiccup with our host. All seems to be working presently, though.


  2. As this player isn’t working and this episode is not currently on iTunes, you can download it as it was broadcast on the radio through’s “Program Archives”. (link on left sidebar) These settings worked for me:

    Date and start time: Apr 10 1630
    Length: 1:30
    Trim 25 off start
    Trim 10 off end

    Other settings may also work, but the straightforward Apr 10 1630, 30, 0, 0 did not work for me.
