    Great stuff. Is there an RSS feed that I can subscribe to, or a way to view your video via podcast/RSS viewer. Catching shows via FaceBook, means that I won’t see every episode, whereas with an RSS feed my pod-catcher looks for new shows every time I fire it up (several times a day). Anyway, I know it’s a pain, just asking. jbb
