    On the computer version of podbean when you now click on the upper left logo on the podbean site , the page has changed, it used to list all the new uploaded podcasts from your subscriptions in a feed format. Now it just has the icons for all the subsciptions and you have to click through each podcast separately. Please put it back the way it was.
