  1. Hey guys, whenever I try to download the podcast by right clicking the download link, it keeps directing me to episode 39. Is the link pointing to the wrong direction?

      Thanks Edridque! That was a over sight on my part!!! It’s corrected now!

    • Lipidman /

      And my podcast service still has ep 40 coming down as ep 39 🙁 will try the manual mp3 download.

      • Draculetta /
