    Hi, I’ve been listening in order, and starting with this episode the podcast is unavailabe for download on itunes or other platforms. ???

    • Hey, apologies for the disruption. The website which hosts the bonus episodes is being upgraded. But the free podcast, that you can find on any app, is working fine. So I suggest you switch to that for a few days. Robin

        I’m using the Apple podcast app from itunes, and i keep getting a message that the episode is unavailable. I listened to episodes 1 to 61 just fine. Problem started with 62. I checked future episodes, and i can access the most recent ones. I will wait a few days and try again. I am really enjoying your efforts!

      • My apologies – it looks like the free episodes were temporarily offline. They should be working ok now.

        Yes, i noticed they were back, and listened to 3 more episodes today. Thanks for telling this great story.
