There are 2 versions of this talk on the R4A server. Both versions are the full 3-part talk (01:49:50), edited for pacing and content, mostly removal of "um, uh, you know" and false starts. I didn't add my own intro/outro to either version:

Version 1: A -24 LUFS Mp3 optimized for RADIO PLAY.

Version 2: A -19 LUFS Mp3 optimized for downloading onto a computer or mobile device for INDIVIDUAL USE. Identical content to Version 1, but a louder file encoded at a lower bitrate so it takes up less space.

You can also download these files plus (much larger) .wav files for highest quality at this link:!AgR3-KWytgTzgvcFM7hmWchhCXNJ6w?e=mUHHJ8

Note to Radio Station Personnel - Please make note of this link:!AgR3-KWytgTzgZw_aOI2oDkhLhlrkw?e=fPuqpV
You can use it to download all or part of the R4A Essential Dissent archive (in at least .wav format) via my OneDrive account, and I plan to continue to post new episodes to that account even if R4A at some point becomes non-functional.
