    iTunes is showing that the runtime is 25:02. Which is correct?

    :eek:;)

    Will you listen to it though? :mischief:

    :D

    Only 25m02s? :hmm: That's incorrect -- 44m59s is correct. When you play the file, is it only 25m02s? I have submitted an update to iTunes on this episode's listing so that should hopefully correct the runtime and/or listing of the runtime on the service. If it does not (shortly), download from the official show website.

    :)

    Yes. It ended during the what units do you miss discussion. I purposely went straight to the end as my wife wanted to hear our daughters voice in the podcast. :D

    That worked. It's now showing as 45:00. Thanks!

    As you have done top 10 lists on wonders, leaders, and leader traits - maybe you could do a BtS unique unit top 10 list in the future?

    Hmmm -- perhaps such a list on all CivIV unique units (as of BtS given a few changes to existing ones along the way). We'll look into it. :yup: Thanks for the suggestion.

    Wrong thread (but Dan will probably like the free publicity), but my iTunes subscription downloaded an #01 OTCast. What's this? I'll have to check Poly later (after work).
