Free Audiobooks & Language instruction for Your iPod

Open Culture is a great site for free and intellectually stimulating audio. Two posts on their blog illustrate this well. In the first they list resources for learning languages. But there are no Hebrew podcasts!? Anyone have a link for us to Hebrew podcasts? In the second they provide a link to free audiobooks.
