Please bring back this podcast!
Please bring back this podcast! I miss it greatly. I always looked forward to it each week, and it really was helpful. If Rabbi Pliskin is no longer able to continue podcasting, perhaps the XML / RSS feed of existing episodes could remain available. Currently I don't see them being accessible in podcast form. Thanks!
