Hi,
I didn't have any problems at this time, it opened and ran smoothly.

If you are still having trouble I can suggest "Saving it to Disc" rather than opening it directly. Once its saved locally, then run it. This may help.

Why: A web browser often takes a lot longer to stream a file to you continuously and can cause it to lock up. While downloading it should only take a few seconds.  This applies to any large file , like PDFs etc. :)  Another advanatge is that you can listen to it any time without the internet.

Cheers,
David

What occurs when you click on this link?

The podcast is in MP3 format - what program do you use to run MP3 files?
