it stopped at 20:47

Dave was saying that Dr. Carl Whitcomb started doing weird things, took seeds from Crepe Myrtle ... he treated them _________

It stopped there.

I had no problem hearing the whole thing. It played without stopping for just over an hour.

Dave, Thumbs up Yes ... I was able to do the direct download to hear the entire podcast! I'd never done that before, just always clicked on it and could hear the entire thing; maybe this time it was because the podcast was longer than usual? I'll have to remember about the direct download from now on.

I don't think the length had much to do with it. Most podcasts are the same length. When I listen to podcasts I always prefer to directly download it and play it on my computer, so that I can go backwards and forwards, pause and all that.
