    Good episode, but my iTunes gave me a repeat of the cheese show instead of this one. Maybe it’s just me, but you might want to double check your feed.

      Thanks 🙂

      I’m sorry to hear that. We knew there was a problem (thanks to Dan from PetaUK), but thought it had been fixed.

      When did you make your iTunes refresh its podcast feeds?

      (The direct link to the MP3 went to the wrong file. And of the MP3 references it could have chosen, iTunes picked not one in the audio player, nor the one it’s officially meant to pick, but the broken one.)

      Also: which national iTunes store are you on? Perhaps yours has not yet refreshed its feed.

        I’m in the US, and I synced sometime around noon Pacific. I just refreshed, and there doesn’t seem to be anything new. I already listened to it but you may want to push out the correct episode for those who are less proactive. Thanks again for the great podcast!

        That’s concerning. I know that iTunes preview is playing out the correct episode, so I hoped that iTunes would send the correct episode out.

        I’ve changed the episode timestamp. Does that fix it?

    Just checked my computer again and it still hasn’t grabbed the right episode, but I just checked and I was able to download it manually from the itunes store.

      I’ve bowed to the inevitable and re-posted the correct link as a separate blog post.

      That way, anyone who subscribes via iTunes will automatically download the correct MP3 file as if it’s an entirely new episode of the show. I don’t think it can replace an episode it’s already downloaded.
