In fact, almost all the audio files in the original post are much shorter than they are supposed to be (10-20 sec vs. 2-4 min). So, if you need the audio, it might be better to use either the mirror link to the podcast or the mirror link with the comment 'complete set' (131.62 Mb). mtkid, thanks  for pdf files, anyway.
