Where do you get your Teaching Company courses (e.g., from the TC, library, eBay, etc)? What's your preferred medium (CD, dowload, DVD, etc.)? Where/when do you listen/watch (e.g., car, gym, couch, etc)?
With a TBR pile of books and audiobooks climing into the 1500 range, re-listening to anything just never happens. Exception: TC lectures of history, philosophy, western civ, religion and literature.
My first TC course I bought at eBay and come to find out I way overpaid. I could have had it for much less on sale at TC itself! I've listened to it several times, however, so it was worth it.
Every course at the TC goes on sale at least once a year. In addition to DVD and CD, you can get audio downloads in MP3 for most courses for even less. I have purchased courses in all formats, including the old audiotape and VHS, which they no longer produce.
TC's catalogs are like magazines with full feature articles on highlighted courses. I find it almost impossible to throw them away. Often they will transcribe and illustrate a single lecture from a course to give you a flavor.
Now, if there were a practical way to scan in those feature articles and catalog them . . .
I used to buy them directly from the TC before I moved to an area with a good ILL program. I have old cassettes too. Including of one of my all-time favs: "Literary Modernism". Brilliant.
