That lead to gold — It was TWIM 239, April 10, but maybe produced on April 1st — April Fools Day — about 3 minutes into the podcast.
I have been trying to get to the shownotes section of this and other podcasts by looking for a link on the respective podcast page, for example microbe.tv/twim. But I can’t and do not know whether the problem is web related on my iPad or something else. Can you help please? I can’t even control navigation to just the main podcast web site either. It jumps to recent podcast listing. Is this due to some behavior of cookies? Any clue would be useful. Thanks much in advance.
