    Hi Vincent, just want to let you know, it looks like you re-uploaded the audio for TWiM 231 here.

    Thanks so much for all the work and care that goes into all your podcasts – incredibly generous of you!


  2. Excuse me, but the play control plays TWiM 231 instead of TWiM 232. I thought I was having Deja Vue.

    I missed this since you began putting the others on YouTube. Others might not know to look for TWiM here.
