To play this interview, you will need an audio player that can play Windows Media Format (.wma) files.

First, try clicking on the audio files above.

  1. If you get a screen filled full of junk, then your browser doesn't understand what to do with a ".wma" file. Try holding down the SHIFT key while clicking on the file. This should put up a window on your screen asking you where on your hard drive you would like to save the file. Save the file to a temporary place on your hard disk. Then, use Windows Explorer to navigate your hard drive until you find this file. Double-click this file. Hopefully, your operating system will be able to associate a ".wma" file with an audio player. If not, see number #3 below.
  2. If you get an alert telling you that you need to download a module or plug-in for your existing audio players, then just follow the instructions.
  3. If you get an error message, you many not have an appropriate audio player installed at all. If this is the case, you can download the Windows Media Player. It's free. Once you download it, you should be able to click on the audio files above and your browser will automatically launch the audio player.
