LearnOutLoud.com is your one-stop destination for audio and video learning. Browse over 30,000 educational audio books, MP3 downloads, podcasts, and videos.
Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

Audio books for auditory "readers."  There are free downloads here as well as the "dollar today" downloads that are frequently bestsellers (that have admittedly usually already shown up on listserv or newsgroup DL packs, but nonetheless!).    

 

If you are my student, I encourage you to not just listen, like a passive potato, but to read along with the reader, annotating your text to show your active reading.

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

Listening to the host's introduction of the professor is a great exercise to identify bias in scholarship.  I have not yet heard whether the professor has a decidedly English and greater European / dominant culture spin on the history of language, but I'm betting the answer is "yes."

From Casablanca to The Killing – the elements of a great script are essentially the same. John Yorke – reveals how and why the best screenwriting works
Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

John Yorke breaks down the elements of drama in a nicely not-so-boring and not-so-deathly academic way.  I like the way he includes "desires" in the definitional terminology of what makes a great screenplay.  That may be old hat in film or theater studies, but it's new to me.

Margaret Atwood’s The Penelopiad, a retelling of Homer’s The Odyssey, is narrated by Penelope and the twelve maids. It aims at dislodging the traditional myth, which presents Penelope as the archetype of faithful and patient wife.
