Episode 21 will be delayed

This is just a quick note to let you know that we’re having technical difficulties recording mintCast this week, so episode 21 will be delayed.

Our normal process would be to record the show one evening during the week, then edit the file together and get it posted on Sunday 30 August. We have not been able to record the show this week as planned. The new plan is to record the show next week, and post it on Sunday 6 September. From there we’ll get back on our two-week schedule, and the next show will be posted on 20 September.

We apologize for the delay.

In other news, we are looking into the possibility of performing mintCast live. You would be able to listen to it as we’re making the recording, or to listen to the recording later at your convenience as you always have.

We’ll keep you updated on the status of the show.
