    What happened to the iTunes feed thing? :(

  2. I lost your show for 3 weeks. It still isn’t showing up as the right feed in the downcast iphone app. I added it manually, but I would guess that can’t be good for subscriptions.

    Could you guys try resubscribing to Gweek via iTunes and letting me know if you can get episodes 24-26? Thanks!

    Apparently Mixel *requires* a Facebook account to sign in.  Why????

    Yay! I hope I don’t re-break the feed…

    Wait.  Aren’t all RenFairs heavily medicated? :-)

    Dungeon Raid rocks. I listened to the podcast purely for this discussion. Okay, Skyrim is cutting into my Dungeon Raid time.

    Ah, Skyrim. 25 hours within 3 days did not bode well for my fall grades. I had to turn off my computer, unplug it and store it in the closet.
