    I’m unable to download or play this episode on Apple Podcasts. Another podcast that had this problem recently suggested unsubscribing and resubscribing. It worked for that one, but isn’t working for this.

    • I’m sorry Dennis! I just tested it on my Mac and the episode streams and downloads fine via Apple Podcasts (on Ventura). I’ll test it on some other Macs too. I also checked out the Apple Podcasts Preview webpage and can stream it from there too.

      That is good advice about resubscribing, but you tried that already. Are you getting any error messages? It may very well be a temporary issue. I’ve run into that where the feed doesn’t get updated properly at the distribution point (Apple, Amazon, Google, etc). When they go to update the feed again, the issues often take care of themselves.

      If you continue to have issues, you can always download it with the direct link above where it says: “Download the show here!”
      OR, of course, you can subscribe directly using the RSS feed.

    Well, I was just able to listen to it here on the website on my MacBook Pro, but it wouldn’t play in Safari on my iPhone 14 Pro Max for some reason.

    HI MIke Lisa Here in Florida~ Loved the Episode!
    I have an iPhone 14 Pro and after listening to the episode I know I will at least upgrade to an iPhone 15 pro with that super trade in but first I have some questions:

    1. I see Dave wanted the iPhone 15 Pro Max – is the only difference from the pro the 5x telephoto on the Pro Max ? Plus the size is bigger? I’m sort of a small person so I may not want the bigger phone.

    2. Could you go over in an episode (or just an email to me) what in the heck are the steps to do when I trade in my phone at the apple store (it’s easy there is one next door so it will be in person) given that
    – I have a digital simm from Cricket in the current iphone 14 pro
    – I have all kinds of apps on the phone including dropbox that are not icloud per se but on the phone. Do I delete them before heading into the store or???
    – Icloud sign out – when during the switch
    – how do I make sure Apple erased the phone I trade in!

    Thanks!!! And thanks to all curmudgeons etc on the show. I agree with Dave – get a cool case and ignore the bland colors.

    • Hi Lisa,

      Dave and I just wrapped recording episode 417 … and we tackled all your questions! Watch for that in just a few days!
