This add-on solved a critical need for me to be able to associate multiple entries from a host profile channel with an entry in a podcast channel. This add-on does what it is supposed to do very well.

I was trying to integrate with Safecracker, which this will be compatible with in the next release. The developer contacted me quickly and offered a beta trial to assist me. Welldone!

This module is easy to use and has a great ui.
