    I enjoyed the Jeremy Cowart interview

    it was awesome.

    I did not hear thru the interview mention of where to see his work, nothing about a website.

    Nice to see a link here, wow incredible

    Keep up the awesome interviews

    Hi Guys,

    Love the show.

    Missed the Jeremy Cowart interview :-(

    Is there anyway of downloading to a PC rather than listening to it in Quicktime?

    I’d like to listen to it at home when I can give it my undivided attention :-)

    Cheers,

    Paul
