My graduate “Evolution of Crop Plants” course makes use of a number of audio clips and interviews with authors. I liked this format and decided to record interviews with authors of some of the papers we read in class. The interviews are brief, generally less than 15 minutes, and focus on issues that often aren’t discussed in the actual published paper. All files are zipped MPEG 4 Audio (.m4a) files; my university web server won’t permit linking to raw audio files (sorry).
