Is ChinesePod always down on Sundays?


Is ChinesePod down again?

While catching up on stuff I haven’t had the time to study during this past week, I am now greeted with this sentence again from last Sunday:

“ChinesePod is Temporarily Down for Maintenance. We will be back shortly…”

So being relatively new to ChinesePod I would like to know if this website is usually down for maintenance on Sundays.


I know that Chinesepod takes a break on Sundays… they don’t post any lessons then. But the site seems fine to me otherwise. I know they’re making quite a few (welcome) changes lately. Sit tight and don’t get to stressed! It’ll be worth it!!


It seems that they are performing backups every Sunday that are supposed to take 1 hour, but they might be taking longer than they are expecting.
