Just to say, in a frantic anti-spam action, I accidentally marked darren p's comments as spam. But he mentioned the soundcloud player isn't embedded here

A note on that. From the embedded soundcloud player there's a download link but when the podcast isn't embedded I couldn't find a way of downloading the podcast without being pestered to register on soundcloud.

Also does soundcloud provide a feed? Couldn't find one.

the RSS feed is here: http://feeds.soundcloud.com/users/soundcloud:users:354109835/sounds.rss

I will add a link to this to the parent page. It's available on most podcast apps, like iTunes, stitcher, Podbean etc so you can listen to it and download episodes on there easily, so that's probably easiest
