When you buy them you can put them into your iTunes and just play them from your phone/ipod. No good?

Well that sucks, what line of work are you in?

I guess I'm lucky in that I can sit at my desk with my phone out, headphones in and just browse GRcade all day get on with my work listening to podcasts and music and no-one minds.

I work at Dealertrack, which is now part of Cox Automotive; car loan contract processing and storage for companies like Capital One, Chrysler Capital etc. We handle a lot of sensitive information/docs; contracts, names, addresses, bank statements, live checks, social security numbers, business tax IDs etc, so our facilities have to be secure.

The only people permitted to have phones or laptops beyond the security checkpoint are salaried employees, and they have to be provided by the company. People caught with personal devices in there are subject to immediate job termination and possibly prosecution.

I listen to HH on YouTube on my work computer via headphones. I don't know if older episodes are available to listen to on other services, but it's on YT so that's my go-to right now.

It doesn’t sound that secure if you can access the internet. ;)

Upload the MP3s to your own YouTube account. Problem solved.

:slol: Only certain websites are accessible. I don't know if I can log in to my YT from work, I guess I'll have to try it out. If so, I can buy to my wallet's content and upload them as I need them.

I finished Blueprint for Armageddon at the weekend. Astonishingly good.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I've only listened to Blueprint for Armageddon so far, and it was indeed excellent. Any other ones stand out above the rest? Not exactly sure when I'd listen to it though as my commute is only about 20 mins these days (luckily).

He's got a blitz edition called "Logical Insanity" about the dropping of the atomic bombs in WW2 that's brilliant.

And one called "The Destroyer of Worlds" which talks about humanity's perilous relationship with nuclear weaponry.

Oh and the "Ghosts of the Ostfront" series is really good too, all about the Eastern Front in WW2.

I don’t think he’s ever done a bad one, all of them are excellent. Just look through a list of them and decide on one that has a subject that interests you.

I really enjoyed the Prophets of Doom episode, told a very interesting story.

I fancy something a bit different to what I'd tend to go for. I would normally automatically be interested in the WW2 one and atomic bombs but fancy something I have more or less zero knowledge of. I'll have a peak and see if anything grabs me.

Then Prophets of Doom would be the one to go for. Problem is it's from 2013 so it probably isn't on the itunes feed anymore so you might need to pay/hunt around.
