    Dear Ms. Fogarty:

    I’ve enjoyed the previous BTG podcasts, but confess I’m having trouble with this one. I can not, for the life of me, find the podcast. I see what appears to be links to items mentioned in the podcast, but no audio.
    I’ve not had this problem in the past, but I sure am now, both in my feed reader (Google Reader) and when hitting the actual podcast page, both in Chrome and IE.

    Please advise, especially if the problem turns out to be user error.

    Thanks for your time,
    Blair
