Thanks for asking this.  I will pass your email onto Troy so that he can keep the Mac in mind.

While you're still looking into things, can I ask that you please select software that is compatible with Mac computers (a number of us are using Macs). I have joined in on the Ancestry webinars (compatible) but have not yet been able to join the Library of Congress sessions (perhaps more podcasts than webinars--I just don't recall). I contacted LC and they got back to me with the message that their software was not compatible. Very disappointing. 

Thank you for considering the request!
