    Hi Bat.

    Love your show.

    I live in France and I can’t subscribe to your podcast through itunes, I have to download it as an mp3, save it, import it to itunes, to get it onto my ipod. Is there an easier way for me to do this?

    When I try to subscribe through itunes it tells me (in french) that your show isn’t “disponible” in the French itunes store. Is it possible for you to make it available globally?

    Sorry to bore you with techie questions.
