      Hi Scott!
      Great podcast I just discovered a couple weeks ago. Very resourceful website and well organized .
      I wanted to listen to the podcast from the beginning , no where can I find the episodes listed chronologically on Podcast app from Apple nor on the website . Is there such link or can you make such link available since a lot of episodes in the archives missing the episode number.
      Keep up the Great Pods !
      Thanks, A fan of the show!

        Hi Aly! Glad you discovered the show.

        Due to some technical limitations, and the sheer quantity of episodes in the archives, there’s no feed that currently exists that houses the whole of the show from the beginning. I’m looking at some other options, but don’t have any at the moment. If you’d like to mail me a USB drive or some blank DVDs, I can back up the archives I have onto that and mail the archives to you.

        My address is:
