    I’ve just discovered your podcast on iTunes, and I was wondering why you don’t give us the possibility to listen to your first 54 episodes?

    • Hi Quentin, it’s imposed by iTunes, unfortunately. They only make available a certain number of recent episodes. If you click on “feed” in your podcast app on your phone you might be able to access old episodes. Otherwise, you can listen to them all here on the blog.

        Thanks for your response.
        I guess you’re talking about another app than the built-in one on iPhone, because I don’t find them in it?

        • You’re right, I just checked and had the same problem. Looks like listening to them on the blog is the only solution for now! Sorry for the inconvenience!
