Thank you to everyone who has subscribed to and been downloading the show. We really love and appreciate that you’re doing it and that you like the show enough to share it with other people you know. You have been doing such a great job of spreading the word that we have outgrown our server and have to make some changes. Tomorrow we will be migrating our site, and all of it’s content, to a new server so there is a good chance you won’t be able to connect during that time. Never fear, we will have it all back up as soon as possible. Once the changes are done the download speeds should be better and most of the issues folks have been experiencing streaming the show should be a thing of the past. Thanks for being patient with us as we make this change, we should get our new episode out on Thursday as normal!
