Just pushing out a quick announcement: Conlangery is currently moving to new audio hosting. It looks like the first 31 episodes are going to be unavailable for a little bit. There may also be odd hiccups with the feed. Should clear up quickly, though.

EDIT: Migration should be complete now. If anyone has feed issues, let me know.
