Complete audio list from 2009 Dublin Anarchist Bookfair

I already briefly blogged the 2009 Dublin anarchist bookfair but here is the complete set of audio files I recorded and that I've edited and uploaded to indymedia over the last couple of weeks.  There is about seven hours worth in total. Also the video of Ashanti Alston speaking at the bookfair.

I've been recording audio for over a year now, one problem with doing it is that although its quite time consuming you get much less feedback then for written material as people are less inclined to comment on audio files.  However I was very cheered this week to hear from some of the heads that some of the audio of my interviews with North American anarchists got over a 1000 downloads each in March.  Obviously there is an audience out there.
