    I’m a huge fan of the podcast, I have a passion for military history and I greatly enjoy the tactical rundowns and the banter between Luke and Will. I particularly enjoyed both fantasy episodes, however I do have a slight problem with this Helms Deep episode: why is it not on Stitcher? I was beginning to worry the Podcast had stopped until the Siege of Antioch popped up yesterday. It was only when I saw I was listed as episode 22 and that episode 21 was missing that I checked iTunes and realised that it just wasn’t posted to Stitcher. Is there a reason for this or was it just an oversight?
