Full show

Hi I’m only rating the podcast as 2 stars not the show. I rate the show at 5 stars. When I’m in town I listen almost every day. But I’m out of town working in the bush and have to download the podcast to listen. I would like to be able to download the whole show even if it is a day behind.

Terrible organize podcast episodes

Great show live but whoever edits and uploads sound bites of the show should be fired. Missing so much of the show or days without a single episode.
