Need to add a full download option

It's cumbersome to get episodes separately, as well as to download transcripts separately. Need to add a "full series" single download button. Thanks.

Difficult for Complete Beginners

I've been searching around on the podcasts to refresh my French, and came across this one. Since I took French for years, this is easy dialogue for me to follow. However, this would be difficult to understand for a complete beginner. I've yet to see the transcript, but based off of another review, it seems both are only in French. It would be much more helpful to have the transcript written in French and then in English with key terms and definitions.

Where are the translations to English??

A beginner can't learn a new language without knowing the meaning of the words! This is merely nothing more than French dialogue written and spoken! There is no "teaching" of the language. This course is useless unless you already know some French & are looking to improve on your pronunciation.
