I think she says:

"Still a 'Highways' fan?"

meaning "Are you still a 'Highways' fan?"

I don't know but I presume "Highways" was a TV show.

I can't be a 100% sure, but that is my interpretation :-)

On the bottom of the page in the posted link I saw another link called "Podcasts".
Anybody to explain the meaning?

Thanks

Thank you very much!!! I guess that I lack this extra knowledge about culture and everyday life :) that's why it is good to have friends who are native speakers! a podcast is a type of a radio programme that has different episodes and can be downloaded from the Internet. You can find many podcasts useful for those who learn foreign languages. I suppose it is a rather new word.
