Thankfully Buddhism is prevalent on the internet. If it wasn't for the internet, I wouldn't know as much about Buddhism as I do, I probably wouldn't even barely know of it's existence at all. I live in a primarily conservative Christian area, so finding information on Buddhism in other places is few and far between.

On a personal note, Rachael Kohn, who is the host of that radio program, used to teach at University of Sydney when I was an undergraduate. Great teacher with wide knowledge and excellent critical skills. Her radio program is one of a kind also.
