Well, as a newbie at this whole podcasting thing, there are bound to be bumps in the road. Such a bump happened this weekend.
I recorded the podcast early this week and set it to publish on Saturday morning, since we were out of town visiting the family. I (foolishly!) left my computer at home, confident that everything was going to go just fine. The blog post went up right on time on Saturday morning, and episode two appeared in iTunes about 4 hours later. If you have already downloaded episode two as of the time I am posting this, you already know the rest of the story.
When my dear mother-in-law downloaded the episode from iTunes and played it, it played a one minute clip of Natalie MacMaster’s song “Appropriate Dipstick.” Arg…
Evidently, putting a link to an mp3, other than the actual podcast, in the show notes is a bad idea!
So sorry if you have already downloaded episode two and wondered what in the world was going on. I ran to my computer as soon as we got home tonight and have removed the link from the show notes. iTunes should update over the next 24 hours, and hopefully that will fix everything. My best guess for those of you who have already downloaded the erroneous episode two, is to unsubscribe, and then resubscribe. Sorry for the inconvenience!
