    Hey, just wanted to notify you that your Ogg feed redirects to this page now.

    I don’t use a specialised podcast program like gPodder so it didn’t affect me much–I just download by right clicking on the title, but just saying you may want to fix this.

    Re LO 285
    Probably not the first to mention this but, …
    The Lemmings story is wierder then you made it out to be. It was a Disney who did it, not the BBC. See the Snopes article on Lemings
    Anyways, love the show. Keep up the good work.
