Same here on latest Nightly, and... IE11 'zero bytes'... Chrome also showing 'zero bytes'.. looks like a site issue I would guess.

EDIT: Add Edge to the list - zero byte file there as well.

Thank V. seriously? I thought for sure something on my end. Sam is Gold Standard of Podcast: His site is screwed up? Can't get normal download from it? Or is it FF?

The file (mp3) is not hosted on samharris.
The link to the file is not a direct link, but a redirect to libsyn.com.

Not sure offhand why their download button doesn't work?

But you can still get the clip, so long as you have the libsyn.com URL.
Various ways...
On the download "button", you can right click, Copy Link Location.

That gives you something like:

https:// samharris.org/wp-content/themes/samharris/resources/download.php?fileurl=//traffic.libsyn.com/wakingup/Waking_Up_115_Krauss_Dillahunty.mp3

Remove everything up through the = & replace it with http:.

http:// traffic.libsyn.com/wakingup/Waking_Up_115_Krauss_Dillahunty.mp3

Paste that URL into your browser (which then "redirects", again) & should open a player, allowing you to download the clip (by right-click, Save (Audio) As...

It does seem to be a site problem.
You can see all of the download links on one page at
http://wakingup.libsyn.com/rss
(which is in the "Subscribe" list on the right side of the samharris page).

If you're seeing links such as "Waking_Up_115_Krauss_Dillahunty.mp3 (audio/mpeg, 91.7 MB)" you should be able to do the Mac equivalent of right-click, Save Link As....

http://wakingup.libsyn.com/podcast has functional download buttons. The button icon is a down arrow pointing into a square.

Great thanks L, so you concur, downloading from Sam's site is not working?

BTW after download itunes launched, which I don't like, how does one prevent that from happening, if you know?

At least one person says Sam's buttons work:
https://forum.samharris.org/forum/viewthread/70715/

Maybe another Mac user knows why iTunes intrudes after an mp3 download.
