Mark, Ron Molenda, Eric Busch and Clive Hawkins.

Hey I just want to let you guys know I appreciate all your hard work.

I listen to a portion of a show last year, but never got back to it do to time issues.

However I came with a great multi tasking idea last week.

Instead of listening to music while I'm doing my various prep work I've started to listen to one of the teacher talk shows instead.

I've listened to one so far, but I plan to go through them all.

I also plan to check out some of the sites you are associated with and the links you have provided.

Cheers again and I'm looking forward to season 3. (I let you know if I come up with any ideas.)

Ooops! Mark I forgot to let you know that I wasn't able to download/open 3 of the pods due to the dreaded "Error 404."

The ones I couldn't access were Teaching Phonics(Both Part 1 and 2) and Methodolgy-Grammar translation.

Hey Mark I'm still getting the "error 404" for the above metioned podcasts.

I have plenty to listen to, but I wanted you to be aware that the problem still existed.

Have you tried hitting the 'refresh' key or dumping your 'recent history' and 'cookie' files?

I tried hitting the refresh key. same result.

However, I'm far from "Joe computer", plus my computer is in Korean, so I'm not sure how to do dump my recent history or cookies files.

Any guidance or words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Can you right click and save them to your computer?

I'll try to look into the problem this weekend.

Alas, I couldn't download those episodes either. And, I couldn't right-mouse click and save it...it said something in Japanese about not being able to see the file.

EnjoyingLifeInSeoul, sorry about sending you on a wild goose chase.

No, Mark I haven't been able to right click and save them either.

Hope you guys are having a good week.

Hey Mark,

I tried listening to the "getting organized pod", but it cuts off right around 40 seconds. You had just put your snow tires on. Hahaha!

So I went and quickly checked all the others, except for the 3 with the fore mentioned problem.

They all worked fine except for "getting organized" and "speaking activities."

Speaking activities also cuts off around 35-40 seconds.

Since you said you'd be looking at the other stuff this weekend, I thought I'd let you know.

Do you get a lot of snow in your neck of the woods? I guess so if you're using snow tires.

I used to live in Seoul and we'd get snow there, but I'm down south now and I get excited to just see a flurry or two.

OK, I think they're fixed (he crosses his fingers)

Phonics part 1

Phonics part 2

Grammar Translation Method

I just loaded the files again. I tried phonics part 2 and worked. I hope they work and after all this I hope they're worth listening too :?
