Jerry Pournelle’s old Western Civ professor used to do radio talks for something called the “University of the Air”. (Probably a university extension course like they have on television today.) It’s in the annoying RealAudio format, but of course there are ways to deal with that. This series deals with European cultural history from 1660 to 1870 (the Franco-Prussian War). It’s full of all kinds of everything, from Pascal to Marxism to Muscular Christianity. Check it out!

“The Wonderful One-Hoss Shay” by Oliver Wendell Holmes
“Captain Reece” by William S. Gilbert (aka W.S. Gilbert of “Gilbert and Sullivan” fame)
