Susan Neiman
I am currently on session 6, many of the talks have been excellent. Susan Neimans speach had a moment that particularily sparked some thought in me - and possibility of future debate.
I bring these stories up to show that whatever the tradition there are deep sources for rejecting the question - Do we need religion to maintain ethics? because the answer is a resounding NO. The Abraham of Sodom and Gomorrah certainly didn't. It was he who gave God lessons in ethics at extreme peril, and this story is at the very beginning of monotheistic traditions. Any ethics that needs religion is bad ethics, and any religion that tries to do so is bad religion.
I must give my thanks for pointing out these videos. They will prove to be a great resourse as I begin to look up the science, history, and philosophy that the speakers brought up in the discussions.

The most interesting and important topics in physics
Professor Richard A. Muller teaching the class "Physics for future presidents". The class is designed to teach what is going on in the world of physics in a non-mathematical way. I watched all the videos and found them very informative. He is a great teacher, and makes the subjects easy to understand. If you have the time - watch them!

I have listened to about 20 of these podcasts so far and they are excellent. Some great trinkets of science information to be found here.
Ep. 73: Questions Show #8, January 28th, 2008
We’ve been so crazy following our own whims through the universe that we’ve neglected your questions. That ends today. It’s time to dig deep into our overflowing email box to retrieve the puzzling questions our listeners have sent in.
I just stumbled on this site the other day. I thought I would share it even though I haven't tested it out. It looks like it could be very good!
