For issues with the web site please email admin at hackerpublicradio.org
and I will try and fix them. That said this is good information to
know in general, and I recommend a show on the topic under the
Accessibility series.

The comment system is broken and while I will try to fix it, I can't
give any guarantees as to whither it will be possible to make the
changes you require, or when they will be done.
