Audio Streams in the Desert (Or, My Free Post-Graduate Education)

As I prepare conclude my eight-year tenure at my first “real job” and move into full-time teaching, I’m grateful to live in such a wonderful time for learning. As transactions costs of sharing information approaches zero (or at least, marginal costs), many universities and seminaries are posting their classes and resources online for free. Over the last eight years, I listened to thousands of hours of teaching from top teachers at top institutions–mostly for free! I am certain that I learned more about the world during this time than in my three undergraduate years at university–and not just because I was attending graduate school during this time. Free audio has been my true post-graduate education, and my three advanced degrees reflect only a fraction of that learning.

Here are some of the most valuable/enjoyable sources of free education for me. Please post links to your favorite educational media in the comments. Enjoy!
