    Thankyou SO much for spotting this. FTP screwed up when uploading the file and being the idiot I am I did not check to make sure it was the right length. Anyway its fixed now (at least I think so!)… enjoy :)

    Started listening to your podcast a week ago. I am learning loads of stuff about designing sites. As a new entrepreneur it gives me tons of tips in the communication with our designer. It’ll save us a lot of money! And hopefully make us some money in the future ;)
    As a non-native English speaker I can understand most of it. Thanks a lot! To bad this podcast, number 5, is so low in quality I can hardly hear it.

    BTW – I have heard of Breathe and love the album. In fact, I still have the album and listen to it quite regularly on my iPod. Sorry this comes so late, I am listening from the beginning (signes up through iTunes).

    I am from America, 30, and never heard of Breathe… sorry. Probably a little late to be weighing in anyway, it’s possible this guy isn’t on your show anymore… (is he?)
