    Bonus Internet Listener Lecture

    Professor Kozlowski snubs his students and addresses this supplemental lecture to his Internet listeners: we're going on a two-week hiatus, but if you want to hear more podcasts about philosophy, mythology, literature, or whatever, e-mail Professor Kozlowski at: profbkozlowski2@gmail.com - he is taking suggestions, and since there are only about a dozen or so regular listeners, you'll probably get your suggestion on the air (so to speak).
