I didn't even know this existed until I stumbled onto it yesterday on the radio. so I did a search for podcast and was really happy to see that it had one. that was until I downloaded this episode and realized instead of getting an hour I got 12 minutes. extremely disappointed. The content was great, I would have liked all of it.
