    Kimberly, I just wanted to let you know that podcast #68 is only 4 seconds long on iTunes. Is there anyway that can be fixed? Thanks!

    I just double checked the feed and the file, and everything is a-ok... sometimes iTunes messes up and only downloads a small piece of a file. Best bet is to (1) delete the short version in iTunes, then (2) go back to the HTC page in iTunes and click "get" for episode 68. It should download the full version for you.

    If that doesn't work, you can always listen to any show through your web browser here.
