Wealth Secrets of the One Percent
- A Modern Manual to Getting Marvelously, Obscenely Rich
- By: Sam Wilkin
- Narrated by: Sam Wilkin, Joe Barrett
- Length: 12 hrs and 49 mins
From the richest Romans to the robber barons to today's bankers and tech billionaires, Sam Wilkin offers Freakonomics-esque insights into what it really takes to make a fortune. These stories of larger-than-life characters, strategies, and sacrifices reveal how the wealthiest did it, usually by a passion for finding loopholes, working around bureaucratic systems, and creating obstacles to competitors.
This is not a manual to getting "Obscenely Rich!"

The Modern Scholar: Geology
- The Story of Earth
- By: Professor Kate Zeigler
- Narrated by: Professor Kate Zeigler
- Length: 4 hrs and 49 mins
- Original Recording
Geology is often thought of as simply the study of rocks. In reality, geology is the study of our planet on all scales, from microscopic to planet-wide, and ranging in time from almost instantaneous events, like earthquakes, to the glacially slow motion of the tectonic plates. Everything we know about our world from a geologic perspective is based on information locked into the rock record and the job of a geologist is to tease out that story through a wide variety of observations. This insightful course explores a range of topics that help to tell the story of Earth and to explain the discipline of Geology and the role of the geologist.
interesting, informative and well presented.
