This is the greatest post in the history of Metafilter! Thank you so much. I am going to be assigning some of these podcasts in my history courses.

This is most excellent. Thank you very much. I am a Delta Blue-phile and this will be something I listen to after a long day at work.

I was just at that museum last week. Crazy.

But I didn't know about the podcasts. This is good stuff.

It looks fantastic. Can anyone find an RSS feed for it, though? I poked around in their links but couldn't find any.

Thanks! (FWIW, I could only get the actual mp3's to download for transfer onto my player via the Odeo RSS feed chunking express linked, the purplebeech one was giving me HTML with embedded Flash players as on the site. I'm usinging Ziepod for a feed podcast client.)

I've been listening to this podcast for more than a year. In fact, it's the ONLY podcast that I've kept up my subscription to.

It's in iTunes as a podcast, btw.
