PLEASE NOTE: I've moved the podcasts to my Google Drive to help alleviate some server space issues at the radio station. Google Drive's antivirus only successfully scans files that are sized 25mb or less. Because the shows are approximately 30-60mb in length, you may see a screen like this.
Please do not be alarmed! It's just Google's way of inciting a riot (that's a joke). All Google is telling you is that their antivirus programming on Google Drive cannot scan the file because it's larger than 25mb.
