Really enjoying your podcast series--only discovered it recently. I would to suggest you add follow-up readings to your podcasts for those that wish to delve further into each topic, although probably not something as in-depth as you assign in your college courses. An example might be links to specific readings covered in Josephus (if these exist on the web).

Dear Professor Satlow,
After reading "Who Wrote the Bible?" by Richard Friedman I went looking for something to supplement my extremely meager knowledge of ancient Israelite history and found your lectures. I just wanted to thank you for making these available. As a busy professional with a family it is often difficult to indulge in learning for learning's sake, but listening to the lectures on my Ipod is perfect. Thanks again!
