On Hiatus

It is with much regret that I post this entry.

Another Wrench In The Machinery...

Due to technical issues with my media host, many of you are experiencing difficulties downloading Episodes of "101 Uses For baby Wipes" and "The Daddy Panel".

I have been assured that the issues that caused the outage have been resolved, but it may take up to 72 hours before the files become available worldwide.

In the meantime, you may see an error (-50) in iTunes, and other podcast receivers will produce other odd messages. My apologies for the inconvenience...I hope all will resolve itself soon.

Episode 146: Where Is Emily Now?

Special Guest Interview: Karl Hindle

Karl's baby girl Emily vanished, along with the girl's mother, who took Emily in January 2003. Since then, Karl has been trying to find little Emily Rose Hindle, pictured here. She has been moved by her mother at least 40 times, through 10 U.S. States.

Karl has spent over 3 years searching for Emily, and he has sold everything he owns to try and get Emily back.

She is going blind. If Emily isn't found soon, and given medical attention for a serious eye problem, the damage will be irreversible.

Karl's search for Emily is a story of international child abudction, a U.S. State Department cover-up, and involvement of a known sex offender in a plot to illegally adopt Emily.

Karl has created a blog to document his search, and you can find it here;


If you have any information on the whereabouts of little Emily, you can e-mail Karl;
