CBC | Podcast in mp3 format | 5 x 54 minutes | 64 kbps 44100Hz mono | 5 x ~24.5 MB at RS

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's 2008 Massey Lectures in audio book format. Plug on your earphones and take a long, leisurely walk toting your mp3 player as you listen to the legendary novelist, poet, and essayist Margaret Atwood delivering a surprising look at the topic of debt. In her wide-ranging, entertaining, and imaginative approach to the subject, Atwood proposes that debt is like air - something we take for granted until things go wrong. And then, while gasping for breath, we become very interested in it. A fresh perspective in the midst of global financial crisis, indeed!
Noam Chomsky. Necessary Illusions: Thought Control In Democratic Societies (Massey Lecture) [ABRIDGED]

abridged audiobook | 48k bps | 2 rar files 40 Mb each

This internationally acclaimed linguist and political radical inquires into the nature of the media in a political system where the population cannot be disciplined by force and thus must be subjected to more subtle forms of ideological control. The author considers how the media might be democratized (as part of the general problem of developing more democratic institutions) in order to offer citizens broader and more meaningful participation in social and political life.

In four seasonal chapters, the film combines ideas and motifs from his work with the texture and history of his mountain home.

The logo of the Munich Symphony Orchestra shows a golden angel on the banks of the river Isar - wing tips point skywards, keeping vigil over the Bavarian capital. As one of the city’s four symphony orchestras, the Munich Symphony is strongly committed to Munich and its musical traditions. Kevin John Edusei is one of today's most promising young conductors.
