What just happened?

Wait a second David ... I have listened joyfully to every single one of your podcasts faithfully for years. I love the show. Think its the best podcast in America and certainly American politics. But now you are moving to a thing called LUMINARY? And wait ... what, I check out the link and get this message?

"On April 23rd, Luminary will be available in the US, CA, UK and AU.We will be rolling out new markets and encourage you to check back for updates.Enter your email below to be the first to know when we launch in your area.Our current pre-sale offer is only available in the US and ends on 4/22."

But I live in the Netherlands.

So now 1) I won't be able to receive the Axe Files where I live and 2) even if I were able to receive it I will have to pay for it rather than listen to ads?

I don't mind paying for it but I would like access. Thank you.
