    The sound file appears to be corrupted. It is nothing but stuttering static at least for the first few minutes and is completely unlistenable.

    I’m hoping to hear this so I hope you can get it fixed!

    I tested the download and playing the file via the web player and both worked for me. Please email if you continue to have issues. Be sure to include OS / Browser / Player info.

    What a great podcast with some great advice especially on the stance of WAA and the rest of the world. It was great to hear Jim say “You have to make it what you want it to be” which I completely agree with. People who enjoy web analytics need to start doing things whilst they can and have the opportunity to help define and establish web analytics in their own regions.

    Great stuff, keep up the great work!!
