My cheapo mp3 portable player hasn’t had any difficulty playing any Car Talk mp3 podcast, including the most recent ones. Are you folks having difficulty with the podcasts downloading them from the NPR source? If not, suggest to try that source instead. That’s where I download from.
I did notice one difference, the comments/title metadata attributes were blank in the recent four podcasts, which wasn’t the case before.
Seems unlikely. I expect it is just some technical difficulty that has cropped up, likely due to problematic software revisions or using a different software vendor than before. As is often said “everything can now be done with software”; true, but that doesn’t mean it will be done correctly … lol …
@chicthomson … Since you live in Scotland, do you read Practical Classics magazine? Danny (the editor) recently sold off a bunch of his long-held cars and used the loot to buy his new “classic”, a 2000 Honda Incite. He found it in Scotland, and drove it back down south to the home-office, interesting article (May 2019 issue I think).
