Our Week In The Web: November 20, 2015

This article is more than 4 years old.

We know we said that we had figured out all of the podcast upload issues last week, but you might have noticed how much our best intentions run foul of the realities of the wider Internet space. There are many technical reasons behind our podcast upload problems of late, but the most important thing to note here is that we refuse to rest until this stops happening. If you have issues with our podcast feed, we encourage you to reach out to us at onpointnpr AT gmail DOT com. And as always, thanks for your patience as we pull the levers and knobs and make things work for all of you.
