    I have enjoyed audio podcasts on your site immensely. Would it be possible to make the conversations with Czeslaw Milosz, as well as Michael Ondaatje available via audio podcast as well? (Not video?)

    Hello Mia,

    Thank you for your comment. I am one of the web managers for Lannan. We do have many audios available and we are working to update “cross links” wherever we can.

    You can listen to the audio of this event on the main Lannan website here.

    Unfortunately there is no audio available for the Ondaatje event.

    If you wanted to DIY, you could download the videos and open them Quicktime. Quicktime will let you convert them into audio-only files that you can play on your computer or your iPod-type device.

    Hello Web manager,

    I sincerely appreciate your comment and helpful information. Unfortunately I do not have access to broadband and therefore cannot download large video files. Audio files of 35 – 40MB are more within my reach. Many thanks for the audio podcasts still available!
