Best Laid Plans

I would like to down load the episodes that feature the readings of Best Laid Plans, but can only find the readings of 'Something Fierce' (which I enjoyed). Is there an archive of podcasts where I could retrieve Best Laid Plans?
Thanks

Canada Reads: The Best Laid Plans

I found the first eleven podcasts to be intelligent, knowledgeable and humorous.
I am now downloading the rest which I expect will continue to provide excellent entertainment.
Terry Fallis deserved to win the Canada Reads honours. Great book, Terry!

Is there a reason why I can not download this episode. All other episodes were O.K.

Many Thanks
