    Have really enjoyed the podcasts so far. Thank you for this resource! I noticed on episode 8 and 9 that it’s not playing the full episode…e.g. Episode 8 starts and then after a few minutes it restarts. This didn’t occur in any of the episodes before episode 8. I tried it by direct download from the site and on iTunes and the same issue occurred on both formats.

      I’ve tested this out on my machine and it seems to be working well on all my devices. Can you reboot and try again? If it still persists, what devices/apps are you using so I can try to track down this issue. Thanks!
