Not available to iPod Touch users
I used to enjoy this podcast. I've been unable to watch the last few episodes on either my 2nd or 3rd generation ipod touch. Apparently it's no longer compatible with the Touch (or at least that's the error message I get when I try to sync it). A real shame, this was great when it was available.
