    Could I download to my computer? I don’t use a smart phone and although I started to download iTunes I gave up. I actually don’t want it, as I have always been able to download to Windows Media Player. Is this possible for Michael Leunig’s chat, please? I’ve been inspired and delighted by him for a great many years.
