Our Week In The Web: September 25, 2015

This article is more than 5 years old.

What can we say — our podcast feed is still being finicky. We're working with our tech team and our friends at NPR HQ to make sure it uploads properly every day to all two-million-plus of our subscribers, many of whom don't have other ways of listening to our broadcast. It's a definite five-alarm fire around here when the podcast feed breaks, and we wish we had a better answer for where it disappears to, especially in recent weeks. But you can be certain — we're fixing the flaw and making sure you'll always have access to our program, wherever and whenever you want to listen to it.
