    Im having trouble playing this. I cant play on TDWPA either. I can only play the first ten minutes

  3. Hmm, sorry to hear that Mister M. I’ve just been listening to it on the DWPA front page and it works fine for me (well, I listened to the first 25 minutes or so before I stopped to do something else (I’ve heard it before, after all!!))

    Do you have another device you can listen to it on? I suspect you may have a damaged copy in your Internet cache (both the DWPA and Staggering Stories sites will point to the same file, in fact both sites are actually running on the same computer!) If you don’t have another computer/phone or whatever to try it on, maybe have a go at cleaning your Internet cache files.
