This app seems to work much better than soundcloud. This episode and the other newer ones aren't even on soundcloud yet.

I unintentionally became addicted to listening to Shane's podcast. A coworker would play a random episode each morning on our drive to work. I recommend this broadcast to fans of every genre of music, not strictly Alt. Rock, Punk, and Metal fans. Keep up the great work Shane.
