    Haven’t been able to download new episode for a few days.
    I’m using podcast addict app for android.
    Please fix, I’ve fell in love with your podcast.

      Hey Jamie! We’re working with the team at Podcast Addict to get this fixed. Try refreshing our feed (or unsubscribing and resubscribing?) and it should be fixed today!

        Thanks Mike,
        Podcast Addict is now working, however, because I am an inpatient fool I purchased the Pocket Cast App.
        This is now experiencing similar problems, last podcast available is Episode 74.
        As long as I get my fix I’m cool, just thought you’d like to know.
        Keep up the good work.

          Hey Jamie!

          Sorry this isn’t working on another service. I’ll reach out to Pocket Casts and see if we can get this fixed up.

          We really appreciate you looking out for our show!!

    All sorted now. I’m a happy chap.
    The phrase you were looking for the other day was “rhyming slang ”
    Very much an East London thing that has found it’s way into the wider zeitgeist.
    Wikipedia has a very good explanation of how it works. Fascinating to see it appear in a comic book, it’s not often used outside London.
    Keep up the good work, my renaissance in comic reading has been helped enormously by your recommendations.
