That's why you've got a web crew working for you! There are formats 
(RealAudio, QuickTime3) that are "streaming" in that they start playing 
while they download. Especially QT3 with TrueVoice compression creates 
really relatively-small files for spoken-word audio. If someone can 
handle the first part of capturing on tape, I'll be glad to help with the 
rest of the process.


P.S. A show can also be divided into a number of segments, to make it 
easier for someone to go directly to a portion of interest.

P.P.S. There may be someone else interested in volunteering to 
transcribe/post the discussions after-the-fact, making the content 
searchable and more accessible.
