The truth will set us free!!! Greatly done!!!

Any that might of read and had a hard time getting through it should listen to this and then it would make our understanding of what knowledge is and with that it can only make ourselves better to each other. I appreciate this podcast only recommendation is to have different voices for each individual in this discussion .. lastly for those who didn’t understand why they didn’t follow the numerical book they did it to not confuse the listeners too much. as from this book it’s to gently take the image of a person that was in a cave unable to turn their head... keep trying and you will get the light :)

Stupid ads ruin this

Each time you attempt to listen to any section of this podcast there is first played an ad for some raunchy video game using the voice of a tough guy street hustler which completely shatters the listener's mood. I couldn't stand it and you wouldn't either! What are these folks thinking, drinking or smoking?

Too general and not thorough enough!!!

Don't get me wrong, I have alot of respect for a man who narrates this huge book, sticks it on itunes, and doesn't even charge customers $0.99 for it.
Thats dedication.

However, what really annoys me about all of these audio books on Plato's republic is that none of them state the author or which edition it is. Its really hard to follow along when my book doesn't correspond to the narrator!!!

In the end, this narrators voice was charming (not annoying at all). However, I would only buy this if you wanted a very large synopsis of the books.
