  1. Hi Kat, Hi Curt, i’m quite a bit behind on your podcasts (when do people find the time for everything they want to listen to?!) but as i’m approaching this episode on July 12, 2017, it is marked as not downloadable on iTunes. Anything you can do about that? Thanks!

    1. Hey Stephen! Great to hear from you. I’m constantly behind on everything, so I hear you. Nice to hear you’re listening. Lemme as Curtis about the iTunes thing and see if he knows.
