great service, but the reading is horrible
As someone who hasn't touched the classics in ages, I found this to be a fantastic way to dip my toes in it again. However, I have a very hard time getting through the podcasts because the readers are so robotic. They don't ever seem to emphasize any words, concepts, or sentences and they never place appropriate pauses to let you digest what you just heard. The day they get some better readers for the text, I'll be the first to give it another try.
Imagine some of the most challenging and stimulating philosophical texts read by the most boring, robotic voice imaginable. Great concept, terrible execution.
The best podcast out there! (at least for philosophy undergrads)
I love everything about this podcast. The sections that they present give the true essence of the full work. I went to the website, became a member and downloaded all kinds of stuff! Its great! Thanks learnoutoud! Please keep this going!! (patiently waitng for Hume on miracles and Russell on, well anything!)
