Our time with Mevio is finished, and all our episodes have been transferred to Libsyn. Oddly enough, that’s where we started 5 1/2 years ago, before being lured away by free hosting. Despite being disappointed by a skimpy 10-day warning that everything would be killed, bitterly complaining about a service we paid nothing for doesn’t make much sense.

I don’t have any power, really, but I can add a small voice to thank them.
