Second major sequence now available in audio format

The sequence "A Human's Guide to Words" is now available as a professionally read podcast.

We have started working on the large "Reductionism" sequence which includes both the "Joy in the Merely Real" and the "Zombies" sub-sequences.  They should be available in a couple of weeks.

As someone who is arguably better at auditory processing vs. visual I much up vote this effort. I bought both available podcasts and the quality is good. Intend to buy others as they become available.

I followed the link, but it isn't clear what my $5 pays for. A button says "Download", but when I click it, it tells me I need to buy a subscription. I don't want to do it if it means I have to go through iTunes, or click on a whole bunch of links to download individual MP3 files. I want to pay $5 and get a zip file of MP3s.

You get a podcast feed link which you can add to iTunes or to any podcast catcher program you choose to use. There are some benefits of doing it this way, the files are bookmark-able (your last listening place is remembered) and you can set your podcast software to automatically sync the 5 least recent unplayed files for example.

If you are anti-podcast though we could certainly share the files with you in a zip. Just shoot an email through to and we'd be happy to do that for you.

PS: If you'd like to test it out, just sign up for the Free essay from Eliezer here:

One of our customers uses a Firefox plugin called downThemAll which, given an podcast feed, will download all the MP3s for you. I suspect this will most closely resemble the outcome you're looking for.

This is Awesome! Exactly what I want!

Edit: This problem has been solved

2) This post is rather old. Is there more sequences available on podcast by now. How do I find them?
