MINI-PODCASTS

Some people really enjoy learning by listening. If you’re one who loves to re-listen to lectures, this is the spot for you.

Here are some audio files for you. They are mini-podcasts, presented in MP3 format. You can download them to your computer or carry them with you on your ipod.

Enjoy!
