  1. Hi Marian,
    I am trying to download your podcast to my MP3 player to listen while I walk the dogs. But I haven’t figured out how. I tried finding you in iTunes Store with no success. Am I doing something wrong or do you need to set up those possibilities?
    We are planning a trip to Massachusetts for April, so this podcast is very timely and your Legacy Webinar gave me some things to think about as well.

  2. Hi again,
    Just found where I could add your podcast to iTunes, so have done that. Hopefully it will show up soon.

    • Margie,
      I haven’t submitted the podcast to iTunes yet. I will as soon as I have the 2nd episode out. I will publish an announcement to let everyone know.
      Thanks for having a listen!
