Note - the stream is viewed in Windows MediaPlayer - available for free from Microsoft. Macintosh and Linux users should use VLC, mplayer or Totem, or the mediaplayer for Macintosh

Note 2 - There is a slight delay in the video with respect to the audio. These recordings are "rushed" recordings made from the source for the live audience. The process of adding live captions for the live audience has added this slight delay. There are uncaptioned recordings for the DVD. If there is interest, these will be edited down and made available after several days. If there is sufficient interest an MP4 version and MP3 audio version will also be made available for download.
