Technical problems persist

The show is great, indispensable, but I have not been able to enjoy it on my iPod since the begining of the 2011-12 season, and now the 5/12/12 episode won't download at all. Pretty hard to enjoy the show when technical problems persist.

Pretty Good, But Their Are Some Problems

Due to the fact that I live outside of the television viewing area for "Theater Talk," I find this to be a great podcast because of the individuals interviewed and the insight it brings the listener (in this case), or viewer of the television show. One problem I have is that because this is really just the audio of the show, there are some aspects missing. In the 10th Anniversary episode, we don't always know who is speaking, which is a shame because one sits there thinking "Wow, that person has really interesting anecdotes. Shame I don't know who they are." But overall, an interesting podcast that is great for people interested in theater or the world of Broadway.

Great Show, I cant subscribe though...

I tried to subscribe, but when I reset my I Pad I tried to but couldnt subscribe. Probaly something I'm doing. I have been a fan of Theater Talk for years, as an actor it is like having a class, a good class for free. I am not a great fan of the big audience in a show. Basically one on one talking about the craft. If you want to watch actors, writers, directors, producers and not really care about who they are dating or stuff like that. This is for you. Thank You....
