    Hi!
    Any idea why this episode seems to not be showing up on iTunes?

    • Hi Bea,

      Unfortunately iTunes is sometimes a little slow in updating. I have taken a look at the feed and the episode details are there, meaning it’s unfortunately in iTunes’ hands.

      I can try and log into iTunes and request a manual update, hopefully that will help it show up

        Thanks for the quick reply!
        Let’s hope iTunes will fix it soon 🙂
