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.
I love these little snippets… one in the evening, one in the morning. For some reason they simply stopped with no explanation on Dec 31. I can’t believe that WSJ ran out of $$$…. bring this back please.
