My audio is a little weird, I seem to be having some issues with Audacity, I'm gonna try some other software for next week.

You need to make the mp3 download button a bit more obvious.

If you subscribe to the RSS feed then you won't need to worry about that. I'll go ahead knock up some buttons anyway though.

Way to tease with the iTunes button.

It's coming. I found a way to register for the iTunes Store without giving Apple my credit card information, but bloody hell do they make it difficult. The podcast is under review and that button will have a link to the iTunes Store page as soon as it's up.

Don't forget that you can still use our regular RSS feed with iTunes itself and it will download the show automatically. The iTunes Store is only a directory that makes the feed searchable - the feed itself is exactly the same.
