Cool Show-can no longer get to download

I like this podcast, however, for some reason, it no longer allows me to load it to my Ipod for about the last 7-8 episodes. Maybe something has changed or I am doing something wrong?

Great Insight to Tekumel

This podcast has sparked my interest in Empire of the Petal Throne and the world of Tekumel. I've tracked down the novels so I could read the material they bring up and bought those PDFs currently available of the original material. My only wish is that they released episodes more frequently.
