I signed up for their Podcasts through iTunes and I only got a couple old shows. I never get the new shows like I do with my other podcasts.

Maybe I did something wrong.

That dixon guy they had on the 11th was a girly.  He was not that honest on some of his statements, most often opinion bias as well as manipulation of facts.  Particularly when he was asked about computer security.  I live about 4 blocks from the K-FABulous studio I should go talk to him if they invite him on again.  Educate him a little bit.  He rubbed me the wrong way so bad I waisted 5 minutes and looked him up to send him a firm but honest letter.

Grow Omaha people please don't have him on again.  He is supposed to be an authority on the topic but if an individual is not honest and becomes misleading it can make your show look like a fool as well.  Then the laymen listeners are left with incorrect knowledge.  Fooey bad ooboo shame on you
