not that this is going to solve you problem, but I'm wondering if you can play the podcast from it's browser page.

if so, then your machine is capable of parsing the file, and it's a different problem

It'll play through the browser, but it won't download into Castro.

But not to be a podcast snob, for lots of good or not-so-good reasons, I use my podcast app for all of my podcast listening.

I am happy to report that, after not being able to listen to last season's episodes on Castro, this season's feed is working.

However, now that I work from home and no longer commute 6 hours round trip to Fort Stewart most weeks, my podcast inbox is getting quite full.

Mentioned in Dispatches Season 11 Ep 9 ~ The Annual Compass Catalog Cavalcade of Whimsy
Brant, Mike, Mike, and (eventually) Jim take their time going through the catalog and pick out the games they want, the ones they have, and the ones they’re trying to figure out the raison d’etre.

Mentioned in Dispatches Season 11 Ep 10 ~ The Circle of Wargaming Life
History doesn’t always repeat, but it does often rhyme.  Brant, Liz, and Jim dig into some wargaming history to talk about the things that were going around and are now coming back around.

Season 12 is here!

Mentioned in Dispatches Season 12 Ep 1 ~ Adventure Wargaming
What the heck is an “adventure wargame”?  OK, so we’re not going to get into the parsing of specific definitional details, but we’re going to try to give you a sense of what makes them different than you average wargame and why you might enjoy playing them

Re: S12E1 Adventure Wargames...

FWIW...some Napoleonic RPG titles include:
  • Privateers and Gentlemen by FGU (naval)
  • In Harm's Way  by Better Mousetrap Games (naval)
  • Duty and Honor by Omnihedron games (infantry)
  • Beat to Quarters by Omnihedron games (naval)
  • 95th by Two Hour Wargames (skirmish wargame with RPG element)
  • Song of Drums and Shakos by Ganesha Games (skirmish with RPG element)
For Adventure Wargame / RPGs outside of this era, one could also add:
  • Long Rifle game by THW if you want to do 7 years war in North America
  • Flashing Blades (FGU) for your 3 Musketeers stuff.
and a whole host of  Pirate-y stuff (Yarrrr!)

Mentioned in Dispatches Season 12 Ep 2 ~ From Content to Design with Beyond Solitaire
Liz drops by to talk to Brant & Mike about her upcoming Night Witches game (designed with David Thompson).  Hexes, counters, aircraft and AAA shooting at each other, and managing aircraft damage all combine for a fun little solo/co-op wargaming experience.
