Looking for a Greek philosophy "specialist" for podcasts

Everything except LibriVox (yes, this is where knitting gets discussed. Now includes non-LV Volunteers Wanted projects)

This is a request from "The Partially Examined Life", a philosophy podcast. I'm not officially affiliated with this website in any way. I'm just an appreciative listener.

Now, there is a request out for anyone who has done at least graduate level work in ancient Greek philosophy to help out in an upcoming series of podcasts on the pre-Socratics, Stoics, Skeptics, etc. It's a free service, like most podcasts, so they probably wouldn't be able to recompense you, but it might be fun. I thought that given the range of participants here, there may well be at least one person who matches the person they're looking for. :)

As they put it:
If you have done graduate work in this area and are the type of guy that memorizes the various Greek words for all the important concepts, and would be interested in coming on the show for an episode, please drop me a line. -Mark Linsenmayer

Unfortunately, I was always very very bad at philosophy, everything seems like such a great idea when explained so nicely...

However, i sent this link on to a few of my friends that did actually go on to do graduate studies in this. Do you know if htey still need anyone?
duck... duck... ZOMBIE!

I'm not sure, quite honestly, but I think they'd always like to have material for new episodes.
