Those here into podcasting will, I am sure, be delighted to learn of
the Stoa's Latin podcasting experiment, http://www.stoa.org/?p=250, where
you will find instructions for plugging the relevant URL into your
copy of iTunes, from which, if you wish, spoken Latin may be
downloaded to your iPod, for suitably uplifting enjoyment on public
transport etc. (Observer, noticing the expression of rapt concentration:
"Say, what *are* you listening to?" You, delighted to be asked:
"Oh, just an introduction in Latin to a podcasting experiment....")

So far there's only the Prima Salutatio of 3 minutes
21 seconds, but more is promised. As someone who once listened to
casette tapes of spoken ancient Greek while walking to work, I
thoroughly approve of this project and eagerly await readings of
Catullus, Ovid, Cicero and others. Something worthy of our Finnish colleagues!
