As for the individual shows, you can find them below. Just click on the episode you want, and you'll be able to download the .mp3 of the episode. 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. I assure you that I'm never going to post a virus on any of these podcast links, and all you'll get is an .mp3 file download of Beans and I talking hockey. I promise. Email me here if you have questions or concerns.

Without further adieu, here are the podcasts!
