    I don't know about anyone else, but the audio on these recordings is atrocious. I hear ambient noise and typing so clearly that the discussion is drowned.

    If anyone has transcripts of this session, I'd rather read those.

          There is nothing wrong with youtube. html5 support and it's easy to use clive to pull everything down.

          Sound is a issue and probably the best bet you can do is do:
          clive -f best youtube-url-blah

          That'll get the best quality available and hopefully you can play around with levels or something to make ti easier to hear. mplayer is pretty decent for this sort of thing. See the equalizer audio filter.
