I use an RSS feed aggregator to check most websites these days but RadioArchive.cc is one I still have to check manually. One recent visit turned up a torrent that figuratively screamed for a download. Keep Your Pantheon was broadcast in 2007 on BBC Radio 4 and was written by David Mamet.
Yes, that David Mamet!
The production, as performed by a cast of veteran BBC voices, is of course a comedy (hopefully you could tell by the title), and follows in the fine tradition of A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum and Blackadder the Third – Sense and Senility. To get the MP3 head on over to RadioArchive.cc and do a search. You will, of course, also need a torrent client (thats the software for getting torrents). I use µTorrent.
