Registration is required; that's the price you pay for a "free" course.  
Once registered, you click on the title of each day's class to go to 
that class.  Near the top of the page is a heading "Special Educational 
Materials" with a link to "Today's Slide Deck" underneath.  Click the 
link to download the presentation, open the presentation, then start the 
audio player on the class page.

Some of the classes are really good, Jon Titus for example.
