Cannot see the transcripts

Hi! Thank you for sharing this valuable information about learning OZ english.
For a beginner, the transcription is super important for my learning and you are so lovely to share the transcription. Unfortunately, when I followed the link down on each episode, I found a 404 error page, which makes me sad. :(
Hope that can be fixed so that I can really understand what you are going to share with me. Thanks!
