My Favorite Podcast of the Moment
One of my favorite professors from college was a guy named Richard Slotkin. (Despite my affection for him, he gave me the worst grade I ever received -- but that's a story for another time.) Slotkin's speciality was the American West. I took a number of classes with him, the best of which was a film class that focused on Westerns set in Mexico. Slotkin recently retired. In his honor, Wesleyan has posted a number of his lectures on line. I recommend them highly for both film buffs and history buffs. Here's a link. They can also be found on iTunes.
