podcasts coming out my ying-yang

Ok friends and foes, lately I've been downloading podcasts to my laptop for nightly perusal before bed, and I have enjoyed them so much I wanted to share them with you. I got ALL of these legally, for free, from iTunes (mostly Berkeley College), CBC, or BBC websites. Although I have not listened to all of them, I lave listened to a LOT. All the Berkeley ones are lectures (the journalism ones are event lectures, not class lectures). C'mon! Who doesn't like learning new and interesting stuff?! Anyway, you can find them from the links provided above, or you can ask me and I can send you whatever specific 'casts you want. Enjoy!

PS> Although I listed all of the podcasts for each of the programs, I did not list all the lectures for each college course, since there are hundreds and this blog is already long enough.
