Hello everyone.  Just to let you know the podcast now had a new website.

http://www.bingethinkinghistory.com

The mp3 files will remain hosted on Libsyn as it's a great service and the new site will link to the individual files, in fact I'll probably have to run the two sites along side each other.  You don't have to adjust anything.

Episode 15 is under way too!
