About the recordings:

To listen to a recording, download it to your computer and play it. To download it, right-click on the appropriate link below, choose "Save Target As..." (or "Save Link As...", or "Download Linked File As...", depending upon your browser), and specify a location on your computer (such as in your "My Music" directory). Use your computer's music player software to listen to the file (on many machines you can just double-click on the filename), or load the file onto an MP3 player (such as the Apple iPod) for listening while you walk, exercise, etc.

If you have "podcast catching" software, like iPodder, the new (4.9) Apple iTunes, etc., you can subscribe to the RSS feed for the recordings which is at .

If you tell other people about this file, send them to this page or the corresponding post on the [SIG blog] and not directly to the URL of the MP3 file since it may be moved in the future. If you think you will send lots of people to download it (like more than 5,000) we'd appreciate it if you'd mirror the MP3 file somewhere else, too, and link there (but let us know about it).
