Would better if available when advertised
Really good podcast. Would be a 5 if it was available when advertised. Never even up on time for my commute home.
Podcast will be better if it can be released in time.
Now on time!
ITunes has now remedied the distribution problem, so they're available when I wake up at 7am PST. Thank you! Great podcast...fantastic news summary, good-humored intelligent presenter, engaging interviews, etc. Makes my commute bearable.
