Just wanted to mention that Firefox does not get along with the podcast webpage for some reason. Last night and today I was able to listen to volume 16 after a few lockups of the browser. Tonight it won't work at all and locks up every time so I tried it with Internet Exploder and it works fine. So I guess I am good as long as I use IE when listening.

That's odd. I've been using Firefox exclusively when listening to the podcast.
Now that you mention it, MS Edge does not play Jody's subscription videos for me, and I've moved those to Firefox.

Whatever works, I suppose.

Well tonight it works just fine. Maybe just needed a reboot or something for one reason or another. It was crashing on the main link to the podcasts with a spinning circle as if it was choking on something on the page. I will use Firefox unless I have to use IE. I am still on Win7.

Until 2020 for me too.

I run chrome but listen to the podcast from my android phone on the drive to/from work so haven't tried streaming via the web browser. Downloading the mp3 to listen locally might help if it is a hiccup with the connection or server?

I learned how to weld at night, but not last night. (despite how my weld looks)

As far as I know, if you stream the podcast from our website it will use your data. You are better off to download each episode and listen that way if you do not have WiFi when listening. You can always download a given episode and delete it to make room for the next one so you don't fill up your phone.

I use beyondpod app, stitcher is another and there are probably a bunch of other podcast apps for android. The apps have settings where you choose how many episodes to download at a time, how many to keep and can be set to only download over wifi. If you have the app set to download only over wifi, then it would not use your phones data. If you download to your pc and then transfer the .mp3 to your phone via usb cable, also would not use data. I would suspect itunes has similar functionality. This assumes you have an internet connection and a computer.

...and everything old is new again. Who's old enough to remember waiting 'til the evening rates to make long-distance calls? Oh, and we had a party line, so if one of the neighbors was on the phone, you had to hang up and wait...
