      Just a note – for some reason, the mp3 didn’t come through in my feed reader. I don’t know if it wasn’t attached correctly or if my reader is goofed…

      I’m also having difficulty downloading the file directly.

      Just thought you might like to know.

      I’ll check this pronto! Sorry for the error.

      For what it’s worth, it seems to reload the front page when you click on the mp3 link…

      Another example of how useful this podcast is. Thanks for doing it. I liked learning that idea that a piece of paper (signed waiver) is a tool, but a limited tool. Important for me to learn that many times (depending on where) the person retains usage rights beyond those implied in the original agreement.
