Here are the links to the playlists for each chapter. These playlists use the online listening service spotify. We’ve also added youtube links. Currently this is available in Western Europe, the US and Australia. If you don’t have spotify on your computer, you’ll need to install it to make these links work, even though spotify is now available as a web app. It’s free, but funded by advertising. (You can get rid of the advertisements by buying a subscription).
In the Americas, spotify is now available in the USA, Canada, Argentina, Uruguay & Chile.
Because of different licensing conditions around the world there are different versions of the playlists for the US.
