Podcasting and mp3 sources
Point of Inquiry is high quality weekly podcast devoted to promoting science, reason, and freedom of inquiry in every field of human interest. It has an excellent list of shows available for free download including:
- Chris Mooney on his book the Republican War on Science
- Eugene Scott on the Dover Trial: Evolution vs Intelligent Design
- Susan Jacoby on her book The History of American Secularism
- Paul Kurtz on Science and Religion: Are They Compatible?
Unwelcome Guests, which is available via the A-Infos Radio Project and is now also available as a podcast, although this is not so evident from their main site. Unwelcome Guests frequently kicks ass with interesting lectures and discussions by knowledgeable people. Highly recommended.
On a more literary note, there is the excellent LibriVox Project which is a collaborative effort to provide free audiobooks from works in the public domain. Recent offerings include:
- Notes from Underground
- Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
- The Communist Manifesto
- The US Constitution
And for some 50's futurism there is Spaceship Radio, which plays vintage short dramas from the golden age of radio, including works by big name early sci-fi writers such as Ray Bradbury.
