Bye Bye Berkeley

All good things must come to an end. The Do It Yourself Scholar has posted that many of the courses that Berkeley has maintained on its podcast site over the years have been removed. As far as I can tell, all the Dreyfus podcasts are gone. It was interest generated by those podcasts that originally brought us here so it is very depressing to see them just disappear.

UPDATE: The Dreyfus courses can still be found on Berkeley's iTunesU page.

FURTHER UPDATE: The Do It Yourself Scholar is now reporting that "due to an overwhelming outcry from viewers across the globe" Berkeley is going to make more of its retired courses available once again.

When I get my new computer I'm going to start archiving these myself. This is too important and beautiful a resource for us to loose.

Note: I have converted
"Spring 2005: Phil 188 - Merleau-Ponty's Phenomenology of Perception (requires DSS player)"
into MP3 format.

Divanation,

Would you be able to share them with me, please?
Please contact me at jtnystrom (at) gmail (dot) com. Would be enormously appreciated.
Dreyfus is giving 188 again in spring 2013 but it seems there are no plans to podcast that, so these might be the only option I've got. The seemingly archaic DSS format has no free player available at all for Intel Macs running OS X Lion or later it seems.
