  1. I don’t like the new player. No direct download link? Makes it much less practical to listen to the episodes on my phone without wifi.

  2. Thanks for the comment Erik. I have made the latest episodes available in the old feed. They can also be downloaded from the acast.com site but I’ll see if there’s a way to get a direct download link. Carl
