Where are the slides?

Where are the slides to accompany the audio lecture?

Awful Audio

To see how bad it gets, try out Lecture 7, which is useless. BTW, you can get slides from MIT's OpenCourseWare website, but they're fairly complex topics and unlikely useful without an audio explanation.

No slides… And hardly audible!

In some episodes, not only can you not see the slides or video, but you can hardly hear anything at all!
