I just bought my first iPod a few weeks ago and stumbled onto this podcast. As a BYU Alumni (1998) in Int'l Relations the Kennedy Center lecture series is one of the items I've missed most (along with the football games of course). I can listen to these to learn a bit and wax nostalgic at the same time. Please keep posting them and look into putting up more of the past lectures. Thanks!!
Some of these speeches are important for the entire world to hear. Thank you for making them available for wider dissemination. Many people fail to understand the truly international character of the BYU community. This should help make it known.
Please post more Kennedy Center Lectures! This is the greatest thing BYU has ever done. I always have classes during the ones I want to go to. This is such a great idea!
