Most Sunday talks are recorded and uploaded on this website. Exceptions are talks that are mainly discussions; this is both for reasons of privacy and because of the difficulty in recording the whole discussion. Also there are occasional failures to capture the talks on the mike (no pun). On this website, we feature talks starting in January 2016; these are available for streaming and/or download.
