Margaret Atwood interview - Q

Wonderful - I truly enjoyed that & learned. I have read all her books & love her sense of humour. Loss of husband must be immense. She was never Medusa to me - just very penetrating.

Great podcast, but we need segment parsing back

Great podcast with an interesting mix of topics and guests. Tom is a great host. However, it was easier for me to listen to when each segment was parsed as part of the download. Since the switch to longer segments, I've been listening less because I rarely have time for the entire podcast or to listen to these longer segments. Bringing back the individual segments as part of the download would be much preferred. Fantastic overall though!
