"The performance of public duty is not the whole of what makes a good life; there is also the pursuit of private excellence. For man, though partly social, is not wholly so." -Bertrand Russell

It appears that last June, The Reith Lectures series added some archived podcast episodes in case anyone is interested in downloading them to your favorite podcast-listening device, including one of the original ones from Bertrand Russell in 1948-1949 (you can find all of his lectures HERE.)
