UPDATE: 21:27 Sunday 22nd December - We've now had it clarified that Apple's email referrs to brand new podcasts only and not to new episodes of existing ones, which means we'll be available to everyone at the same time! Christmas has not been cancelled! Thanks to Jeff Wadell on Facebook and @TheWhoCat on twitter for your help with this.
The Whispering Fog, our Christmas special for 2013, is set for release on Monday 23rd December but if you're an iTunes subscriber, you will find this delayed until after the 27th.
Apple have suspended their 'Submit a Podcast' function from 21st December to 27th December, which means that the Christmas Special will not appear on the iTunes service until after this date. We're dissapointed that this is the case, and especially dissapointed that no explanation has been given in the email sent to podcasters by Apple.
If you want to get your fix of The Monster Hunters before Christmas (and who doesn't?), you will still be able to access The Whispering Fog directly from our website and from the page provided by our publisher, Libsyn. We also believe third party podcasting clients such as Downcast will remain unaffected.
We'd like to apologise to anyone who downloads exclusively from iTunes, and hope you'll still be able to enjoy Roy and Lorrimer's latest adventure by visiting us here.
