  1. Duncan, any reason why this podcast and the Roy Padayachie interview aren’t on the TalkCentral podcast RSS feed? It would of been nice just to download and sync them in iTunes rather than download the individual files, etc.

  2. Glen, we decided not to put them into the TalkCentral podcast feed because we were not sure TalkCentral feed subscribers would want them to arrive automatically given they’re not the regular podcast. I’m open to changing that if more people feel we should include special podcasts in the TalkCentral feed. Duncan
