  1. Unfortunately, the audio file seems not to exist … “The requested page “/kctvreview/61-Homicidal_Maniac_Crazy.m4a” could not be found. “

  2. The link to the audio file is working in this post. I can’t see any obvious reasons as to why (I checked the website links as compared to last week, and that looks fine). I would like to listen when it is properly linked!

      1. Looks like the file has begun to work!

        I can’t wait to hear Kurt’s reaction to this. Remember at Mythmoot, when I had to stop myself from saying any more than a certain episode was weird? Welp, we have arrived.

  3. It seems to be playing from this page now but my podcast app (Pocket Casts) is still insisting there are no new episodes since last week. Most odd!
