The Teaching Company, a place that sells awesome courses on audio and video that I've pimped here before, is having another one of their massive sales. 177 courses for under $75, many for under $35. For today (Saturday, U.S. Eastern time) only!

I can recommend these things from the sale (and more that aren't on sale!):

Medical Myths, Lies, and Half-Truths: What We Think We Know May Be Hurting Us by Steven Novella
Understanding the Fundamentals of Music by Robert Greenberg
Herodotus: The Father of History by Elizabeth Vandiver
Stress and Your Body by Robert Sapolsky
Great Masters: Tchaikovsky—His Life and Music Robert Greenberg
Great American Music: Broadway Musicals by Bill Messenger

I also tentatively recommend Bart Ehrmann's lectures on historical Christianity just because I really enjoy his books, but I haven't yet listened to any of his lectures.

Cut for list of stuff I want to get, so I have it in a big list for the next time stuff goes on sale.
