I’m maintaining a personal archive of interviews with, and recordings of, U of T professor Jordan B. Peterson. My emphasis here is on publishing audio files of YouTube videos, because we all have better things to do that sitting fixedly at a computer watching a video when we could just listen to it. You can also download much more usable versions of Peterson’s PDF of his book Maps of Meaning.
Peterson now has his own podcast. To subscribe to any podcast, all you need is its RSS feed:
If you’re stuck copying and pasting for some reason:
iTunes, Apple, and SoundCloud all are completely independent from podcasting. Podcasts are audio files published by RSS. You don’t need iTunes or Apple for a podcast, and SoundCloud files aren’t podcasts. This may be the first time you were told any of that.
You can save these alternative files wherever you wish (and, for example, add them to your podcast player, if, like Overcast, it allows you to do so). Audio files now have much more complete metadata and custom artwork, as they should have all along.

Peterson’s own lectures and monologues.
Peterson’s book Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief was published by Routledge in 1999. Peterson offers two technically unworkable PDFs of the book for download. I improved those PDFs were possible.
To properly republish Maps of Meaning would mean converting it to a well-tested ePub file so one could read it as an E‑book. I don’t see that happening.
Peterson rose to prominence in 2016 by discussing the implications of the Canadian federal legislation know as Bill C‑16. You do not write the name of that bill with a hyphen (the normal character you see on your keyboard, typically between 0 and =). You have to use a nonbreaking hyphen, otherwise your carefully measured words about this legislation will seem to be talking about Bill C‑
16 (with unwanted linebreaks in the middle of what should be inseparable character sequence).
(First time you’ve heard of that, too? Good thing you come to my site, then. You learn things.)
In HTML, you have to write C‑16 as C
‑16. You probably aren’t set up to do that (I am), so just write C‑16 with a normal hyphen and do a search and replace afterward.
Every word processor, even Microsoft Word, provides for nonbreaking hyphens (Shift-Command-hyphen on Mac, Shift-Ctrl-hyphen on Windows). There is nothing stopping you from typing those characters. It isn’t difficult and now you know better.
You have to use a nonbreaking hyphen even on Twitter and Facebook, because lines break there, too. (You won’t. The House of Commons homepage for that bill doesn’t, either.)
