Lincoln-Douglas Debate audiobook

Share

I’ve spent the past week listening to BBC America’s 16-hour dramatic reading of the Lincoln-Douglas Debates, America’s most mythologized political discourse. I’ve been reading about the Debates since I was a teenager reading Neil Postman’s Amusing Ourselves to Death (he holds them up as a substantive counterpoint to the soundbite-heavy, content-lite Reagan-Dukakis Mondale debates), but I’d never actually read them.

The Lincoln-Douglas Debates (DRM-free MP3 download)

Found on Boing Boing.
