Love this podcast...my newest obsession with the many online story podcasts I have recently become fascinated by. Just a quick note: I use my Zune to subscribe to this podcast and listen to it, and no podcast "cover"image shows up in my feed or on my device. It appears this is because the image link in the XML for the feed URL itself links to a broken image/site, so no image is pulled for it. Just FYI. I am quite fond of the podcast cover image and would love to have it on my device while listening to these awesome stories.

Hey, welcome to the forums!
Norm should have just gotten that fixed. If you still have problems, or can point out the improper URL, please let us know!
Thanks

Thanks for the greetings you two! It looks like the feed image is fixed if I add the podcast to my Zune podcasts directly using the RSS feed on your site. (Yay!) However, the internal Zune podcast feed (the one that can be added directly from the Zune Marketplace) does not update the feed image. Just FYI. Maybe their feed URL they use internally doesn't link in the XML to the correct image/URL anymore?

I'm really enjoying these stories. Thanks so much for putting together and hosting these podcasts.

Thanks for the info. I looked over the Zune listing, and the marketplace shows the proper logo now, so my guess is that it just takes a while to refresh, or even re subscribing to the 'cast.
