Thank you for providing a streaming link as well: with nowhere to download podfic to, I rarely get a chance to listen, so it's exciting to have the opportunity to hear you read! A delight.

(I more often treat your podfic as a link, and have read some excellent stories as a result of your good taste.)

Can you see whether your streaming links have been listened to?
Don't feel obliged to stream them just for me (!) but I'd be surprised if I'm the only one for whom streaming is a good option. I do love the embedded players, it's nice not to go elsewhere to listen.
I didn't manage to listen to your streamed Kink Bingo ramp up discussion with yue-Ix: is there a link to the streaming of that, or did it not work out? No worries if it wasn't working - don't go to any effort for me - but if I can pick it up off-site and it was just the embedding not working, I'd love to hear. If not, I can read the transcription.

Sounds complex - thanks for persevering with it, but I rarely listen rather than read, so don't stick with it on my account only.
I share my computer and phone - particularly audio (music and podcast) files - with my youngish children, and I've not figured out how to stash audio files in a separate area out of their reach. I had your podfic of "Little Wooden Boy" DLed once (for a long walk), and they were delighted to spot a Merlin story! Nooooo. :)

That worked - clicking on the download link gave me the stream too. It may be my browser causing the glitch. Thank you.

You are a delight to listen to, clearly enjoy what you do, and make clear and clean recordings that are a pleasure. Thank you for taking so much trouble to create something so lovely.
