I always really enjoy the episodes with interviews with @madrooster, really looking forward to the episode coming out this weekend with part 2 of the interview. I'm looking at booking flights to Canada if the government lets us out!

Thanks for letting me know.

I think we've found what may be causing the issue with Pocketcasts, and we're looking to see if we can find a solution. Unfortunately it's not a simple fix.
Ahhh OK.... I just realised that i have not had an AFF OA podcast download since Ep 60 - I'm on Pocketcasts. Will catch up by other means. but would look forward to an eventual PC fix if possible - Cheers :)

I have been having trouble with other podcast hosts as well. At one stage I wasn’t getting any AFF down loads on Apple podcasts and went to Overcast as it had a good reputation. Didn’t receive episode 63 on Overcast so back to Apple podcasts and episode 63 was waiting for me! I just know that every second Saturday I have to look for Matt’s dulcet tones!

Thanks for letting me know about the Overcast issue. We will investigate this but I suspect the problem is related to the Pocketcasts issue.

In general, every episode is available on Apple Podcasts immediately after being released. That's been fairly reliable. YMMV with other platforms, I guess.

FWIW, I also haven't received episode 63 via Overcast. I also think episode 62 came through late -- I remember thinking it was odd that it arrived in the middle of the week.

Edit: After doing a manual refresh of AFF on Air, it has now appeared. It didn't pop up automatically though.

Ditto with Pocketcasts. Nothing since mid-May. I guess I'll have to look elsewhere, although all my listening is on one App at the moment - nicely organised so the AFF Podcast downloads immediately and is scheduled next.

Just listened to the latest podcast today while cleaning the bathroom - make that chore less of one 😏. Very interesting and enjoyable.

David was so right about reaching status requalifying goals. I was Silver and very close to hitting Gold when Covid started and even though I had my Silver and paid Lounge membership extended - status points continued to drop off anyway. Which left me at a point where I began to think is it even worth trying to crawl my way back to at least Silver.

Silver does have a couple of OK benefits - I can have an extra bag - but I've only had to use that once. And Lounge membership "only" cost me $330 - but it was worth it for me with the number of flights I took and it was nice to guest a travel companion. And there were a couple more lounges back then (not at my home Airport though 😭) But now Lounge Membership (paid) has risen to $400.

I did take advantage of the 20 extra SC per leg that was on offer last month and booked all my flights for the rest of the year - if I've worked it out correctly I "should" hit Gold in a few months. But looking at the benefits - yes I do get complementary Lounge - but nothing really more than what I get with Silver. Oh - apart from being a fancy person allowed to board the plane before the hoi polloi :p So yeah - not really sure if the effort has been worth it - unless Virgin can come up with a few more perks. 😏

Podcast 65 on Loyalty programs was truly amazing and full of insights. Loved it. Still have 2 episodes to catch up. I usually listen to them during my weekly shirt ironing session, but since the lock-down hit Canberra, no reasons to iron shirts anymore. I need to find a replacement activity, maybe I should follow oz_ally example and clean the bathroom :)

Long time listener first time caller. Really enjoy the show, thanks for your efforts putting it together Matt. I thought David from 2-3 eps ago was an outstanding guest and would love to hear from him more in future. Madrooster is also very informative.

Lastly thanks for mentioning the Sniip promo - gave me the push I needed to sort out a few Visa/MC only bills and stacked well with the Amex 20% back up to $30.
