This may or may not be the penultimate recitation of this work, but it is free and complete! That alone gives it 5 stars.
Immensely enjoyed listening to this podcast reading of Plato's The Republic - I seem to have made off with more of an understanding of the material after a couple days listening than in an entire semester long introductory philosophy course at college. This guy should be payed for a service like this, though I suppose glowing reviews of the podcast can meet him halfway.
I've been listening to this this podcast for quite some time now and am thoroughly enjoying this highly accesible and entertaining production. The narrator has a fabulous accent that authenticates the recording. I highly recommend this podcast as an easy way to gain exposure to this classic work.
