The entire podcast playlist of the 2008 Shanghai International Literary Festival. Listen in or download to your iPod

Here it is, the entire playlist of all the talks at the SILF (in the Glamour Bar) that we could record. Now you can easily listen to or download them all for your iPod listening pleasure. We marked some the podcasts that we thought were particularly good, but feel free to challenge us or listen to them all. Again, we want to thank Tom Lee Pettersen at [Meta Music Media](http://www.metamusicmedia.com) for his sound engineering and recording time. We also want to thank the entire SILF team for another great festival. Below is a chronological list of all talks. Click on any one talk to hear each session or to download each as a podcast. Feel free to leave comments or contact us for questions.
