The “After Show” links are in their respective regular show posts. In other words, to see the After Show for Season 4, episode 3, click on “read more” under O5O 4.3 and go to the After Show link towards the bottom.

I’ve evolved the formatting of the shows over time. Sorry for the inconsistency. Earlier shows, you’ll have to click on “read more” to go to the actual post. Later shows, you can just click the thumbnail to watch/listen.
