I love the show, I've been listening for months and only now finally joined the forums. I hate for my very first post to be a 'complaint', but, it seems that the ad-free/members only version of this episode is borked. The regular version plays just fine. Ad-free versions of episodes 600, 599, 598, etc., play just fine. 601 won't play, and when I try to open the download link in a new tab to listen, I get a 404 error from Libsyn. I'm not sure if it's just me, or if the escape to reality is generally being a bit stroppy, today.
My favorite questions are the ones I don't know the answers to!

I have the same problem, the ad-free show won't download. (FWIW: My podcatcher of choice is Pocket Casts from Shifty Jelly.)

Same here for premium episode 601, won't download.  Using iCatcher! on iPhone, all up-to-date.  Non-premium version downloads fine.
[edit: showing error "404 - File not Found"; suspect at typo Steve]

UPDATE: Working now...thanks!

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Still not working for me - same issue, I get a 404 error when trying to download. I'm using PodCruncher. I've unsubscribed and resubscribed - still no luck.

Add me to that list.  I'm getting a 404 on the adfree episode 601 in BeyondPod, direct link in my webbrowser (after logging into http://www.theskepticsguide.org/members-only-content and verifying the feed URL hadn't changed and my subscription was up to date.

The player on the web doesn't work either.

Still having the same problem, here. I'm just on my PC, using Chrome.

Doggcatcher says the file might be not found for a few reasons - including an authentication error. We've had that happen before at least once. IIRC some were able to download by switching to unsecure connections - but the RC part of that is pretty shaky.

ETA I can't access it either.

Awesome episode! Thanks especially to Jay  :jay: for the great recommendation about asking advertisers to avoid fake news sources. It's a fantastic idea, and an excellent example of how skeptics can take direct action.

On SoF, one point of nuance: more exercise is not always better. For most people, the advice "move more!" is good. For some people, exercise dependence can become pathological. Its relatively rare, but good to be sensitive to.

Yup, the premium version is broken for me as well. Using the Podcast app in iOS.

iCatcher gives a "404 File not found" error for the ad-free version. I am going to try to find the regular version.

ETA: I got the regular version. I'll listen to it at my regular pod-listening time. I don't mind listening to the ad-included version once. I'm actually curious to hear what the ads are like.

Add another to the can't download lost. No prob to grab the regular one for now. I use BeyondPod.

Seems like the file is actually missing at this point.
