How this terrific program can be expanded to serve more people

There are over 50% of Chinese American that are from Taiwan and other southeast Asia countries. These people have grown up with traditional Chinese and not simplified Chinese. They probably would like to have their children and grand children learn Chinese but would prefer a system that offers both versions of Chinese. Many translation online services offer both version and thus have wider audience and participations. Thus I would like to suggest that Chinese Pod will be greatly enhanced by offering in written form the traditional Chinese as well since the verbal is identical it should not be a great technical challenge to have people click the their preference choice.

ChinesePod already has support for traditional characters. Is there something I'm missing here? When on a lesson page, click the cogwheel in the upper right corner (to the right of the "Dialogue", "Discussion" etc. tabs). There you can choose which character set you prefer.
