It would make it easier to listen to this on my commune. June 6, 2017 Reply Josh There should be a download button in the audio element. But that may be browser specific, so if it’s not there for you or other people, I’ll throw in a direct link too. June 6, 2017 Reply Muspel It’s my understanding that the audio element is basically the wild west, and every browser handles it differently. June 7, 2017 Reply Blake Running Firefox here and there was no download button, but right clicking the audio player had a ‘save audio as’ option in the context menu. Not ideal, but might work for you. June 7, 2017 Reply Josh Okay, I’ve added download links to the post. June 7, 2017 Reply Trainzack Thank you! June 9, 2017 BlusterBlaster Seconded. I like to listen during my running sessions, and a download link would help a lot. June 6, 2017 Reply evilmrhenry The asset flippers will be more damaged by the changes to trading cards, because it directly hits their income stream. Steam Direct doesn’t matter that much in comparison. June 7, 2017 Reply MichaelGC “Spod” has a slang meaning in Britain, although possibly it’s a little archaic these days. It means something similar to ‘wonk’ or ‘dork’ and is not at all complimentary, without being viciously disparaging. (In previous decades I might have said ‘geek’ or ‘nerd’, but both of those words have developed happily-positive connotations in recent times.) It’s the kind of word you’d use to tease a friend or to gently self-deprecate. So … maybe that actually works quite well?… :p June 7, 2017 Reply BlackFox Any chance you’ll be able to get this up on iTunes? It’s convenient to have all my podcasts in one place. June 8, 2017 Reply MichaelGC What you can do is copy the “Entries RSS” link, and then go to the Podcast app on an iDoofer, “Add Podcast,” paste the link in, and “Subscribe.” That seems to work OK by just grabbing the .mp3 files. (I assume it’ll work similarly in iTunes as on a doofer, although I haven’t actually tested that out.) June 8, 2017 Reply Adrian Leonhard Can we get a Spodcast-only RSS feed please? Getting text and SW posts in my podcast listener isn’t very useful. June 10, 2017 Reply anaphysik Based on your commentary so far, I recommend the name “AnimeTiddieCast”, pronounced /ˈspɔdkæst/. That, or some kind of word-substitution (like Disclosure Alert was for Spoiler Warning) using “Forecast” in place of ‘Warning.’ June 13, 2017 Reply Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
