Best Academic Lecture Podcast Yet
I've been subscribing to the U of Chicago and U of Virginia podcasts for a while now and haven't found much of interest, but while googling for Stephen Levitt audio, I found the Colorado College podcast, which has Levitt, Michael Berube, Jim Wallis, and Mark Bauerlein. And that's just in the past 12 months.

UPDATE: There's also a poetry reading by Philip Levine. A Levine blurb from poets.org: "Levine writes gritty, fiercely unpretentious free verse about American manliness, physical labor, simple pleasures and profound grief, often set in working-class Detroit (where Levine grew up) or in central California (where he now resides), sometimes tinged with reference to his Jewish heritage or to the Spanish poets of rapt simplicity (Machado, Lorca) who remain his most visible influence."

UPDATE 2: The reason I mentioned Levitt is that he's giving a lecture today at 4.30 (?) at Emory U's Glenn Memorial Auditorium, aka the church near the main entrance. It's part of the Founders week celebration, which also includes a cello recital on Feb. 7 that has Brahms's first piano trio on the program.

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

www.americanlegends.blogspot.com

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Thanks,
David
