    Do long time listeners need to change their feed setting to see new episodes? I subscribed long ago to the History of Byzantium using BeyondPod on Android. The feed at that time was http://thetvcritic.org/historypodcasts/feed.xml but I don’t see this episode on that feed.

    Should I change the feed to http://thehistoryofbyzantium.libsyn.com/rss or http://thehistoryofbyzantium.com/feed/ to make sure I see new episodes?

    If the feed at the tvcritic.org will not be updated in the future, would you post a note there so others will see it.

    Thanks, and thanks for a wonderful podcast,

    I have been dreading the day this episode would be released .
    It’s hard to imagine this is the same Empire of the Antonines and Severans .

    • I haven’t been able to bring myself to listen to it yet. That makes me a coward in a way, but something real died that day.

    Hi Robin,

    I can’t see the new episodes of the podcast appearing in the iTunes feed! Can you get in touch with them and check it’s all working and uploading to Apple properly, I’m using the apple podcast app and it thinks the most recent episode of the podcast in the feed was your update of the 6th of March.

    I also wanted to say that’s it’s great to be getting the regular updates again, I live the show and really appreciate all your hard work on it.

    All the best,

    The phrase “just another PR spin on disaster” is repeated in the episode– you might want to fix that.
