iTunes...

Something keeps happening with my iTunes subscription where I can download them separately, but once I subscribe the new ones won't download...there's this little exclamation point to the left that says it's a corrupted file or in a format iTunes doesn't recognize. Is this just my computer?

Oh noes!

Tabitha,

Have you tried canceling your subscription and re-subscribing? The reason I ask is that we had an iTunes channel that wasn't working so we created a new one. It's possible that you are still connected to the old one that we no longer update. Try that and see if it works, and if not we'll get in touch with iTunes and see what's up. We can't have you without podcast access now, can we?

I had a similar problem with Open Source Audio

Kelsey,

I tried this twice from Open Source Audio and found to have a similar problem as Tabitha had with iTunes. The first time I listened I got through it. But when I tried the second time it stopped in the middle and I got a prompt telling me that it was a "corrupt file ..." Before this I was downloading and listening to Popaganda and the Consumed issue from Open Source with no problems. The problem might be more with the file itself than with the host site(s).

Just trying to help.

Thanks!

It turns out there was in fact a corrupt link in the file chain for this particular podcast, but I re-uploaded it and it should be working now. Sorry for any technical difficulties!

over 40

Hey, I listened to this until the point in time where you girls mentioned the "over 40" comment, wondering what us old ladies are going to wear since only "sexy" costumes are available at the stores. I am not the kind of woman who would have worn the sexy this or sexy that costume in my teens, twenties or after 40, preferring to make my own over-the-top original Halloween costumes on more traditional themes with a bit of blood and gore, but if I wanted to be a slutty firefighter I could pull it off just fine, thank you. This year I am going to be Red riding hood; post wolf smackdown and I will get hit on by many boys in their 20's as I always do when I go out. So, bite me like a zombie and tell your Mom to wear whatever the hell she wants to wear.
