Can we get the download link again? I love the podcast, but like many I listen to podcasts most often while driving in the car. It’s much easier (and safer) for me to download the episodes to USB and then plug and play them through the car system, making it simple to rewind/fast forward etc. If it’s on my phone, I have to control it from my phone. Tricky while driving. Thanks and sorry to be a bother.
Sure. Link is https://pod.fo/e/17319f This will take you to your podcast listening device of choice.
