Our Week In The Web: November 13, 2015

This article is more than 4 years old.

If you, like several hundred thousands of our regular fans and visitors, subscribe to our podcast on iTunes or Stitcher or wherever else you sample fine podcasts out there on the great, wide Internet, you may have noticed some issues with our feed this week. Mainly, that podcasts either 1) didn't upload or 2) uploaded in truncated, bizarre partial form. The technical reasons behind this glitch are long, complicated and currently mostly resolved, but it had a lot to do with a new version of our content management system and some coding conflicts with a variety of third-party platforms that help our podcast make it from our server all the way to your ears. As you wait for the conflict to resolve itself in your podcast queue, we encourage you to stream or download any of the broadcasts you've missed from their pages on our site.
