Wall Street Journal tech new- download problems
I love the podcast, but I frequently get messages that the URL is incorrect. I frequently cannot download the episodes.Unsubscribing and then subscribing doesn't solve the problem. E-mails to the WSJ not responded to. If not for this frequent problem would give 5 stars.
Lose the Advertisement
WSJ has been enjoyable, but the advertisement needs to go.
Excellent quick source
