    Hello Dominic, for some reason episode 67 showed up twice on my iDevice, one from Wednesday, the other Thursday – it looks like each with slightly varying description text (as far as I can tell on a caffeine-deprived early morning). The file size seems the same, however.

    A minor glitch?

      Hi Michael,

      Not a glitch! There were a couple minor blips in the original upload, so I edited the original mp3. Unfortunately this required re-uploading it.
      Delete the *older* version from your device – keep the newer one (it’s better).

      Apologies for any confusion!
