This program was produced by American RadioWorks. I see they do not offer a downloadable audio option. You can stream it from their website, though. Here is the link:
You'll may also be interested in their Say It Plain program, which we've run in previous years.
Thanks for your interest.

Is there a podcast or any format of this show that can be downloaded? It was excellent. I want to play it for my high school students.
