In the meantime, I thought I would post some links to some more traditional podcasts on Ancient Philosophy (and especially Plato). I have listened to some of the lectures from the UC Berkeley Ancient Philosophy class. I listened to a few of these last summer and I found them fairly interesting. In general, I do not entirely agree with David Ebrey's views on Plato (and his voice is really annoying), but he points out some interesting moments in the dialogues that I did not notice and his lectures are fairly engaging.
There are also, as it turns out, a number of podcasts that I had not stumbled upon until now. I have not listened to any of these, so I cannot recommend any of them, but I certainly will listen to them and review when I have time.
- Philosophy 103 at CUNY. This is a class on Plato's Republic (or more accurately Politeia). There are both good and hostile reviews of this class, but I am not sure what side of the divide I fall on yet (having not listened to it).
- Lectures from University of Chicago. Two lectures on this list are about Plato: "On the parts and whole of Plato's Republic" by Anton Ford and Gabriel Richardson Lear's talk on Plato's philosophy of poetry. Both look great.
- Political Science 10 at UCLA. Reviewed on Anne is a Man.
