Clyde, whomever he might be and thanks to him, posted this on Zen Forum International:

For an enjoyable and inspiring series of talks about the actual life of the Buddha as found in the suttas, listen to Stephen Batchelor’s eight talks given at Spirit Rock Meditation Center on The Life and Death of Siddhattha Gotama:

Renunciation: http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/169/talk/348/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Awaking: http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/169/talk/349/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Exile: http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/169/talk/353/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Death : http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/169/talk/354/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
These are really very good, worth spending with, no matter what else one might think of Batchelor.
