List of readings would be helpful

It's good to hear these lectures (although the prof is a bit halting in her presentation). However, the foundation of any course is the readings. Unfortunately, there's no reading list that accompanies the podcasts. Therefore, the listener only gets small bits regarding the readings upon which the prof chooses to comment during the talks. For example, when Prof. Rosch refers to "the Trungpa reading," there's no clue as to which of Trungpa's works she is referring. Truly unfortunate.


I do not attend UCB, however, I have benefited tremendously by these lectures! Please keep these coming. Thank you
