I would give 5 stars, but...

Love the content, the speakers, and the format. Unfortunately, at least with Richard Beck's lectures, the audio only comes through as mono instead of stereo. Should be easy to fix, but it's a bit frustrating to have to listen to the talks with one headphone having no sound at all.
