Revisiting the Most Re-Revisited Problem in Popular Mathematics... Again

A recent 14-minute podcast from Scientific American on... guess what... the Monty Hall Problem:

Nothing new here, but if someone prefers a verbal/vocal description of the puzzle over a written description this podcast may fill the bill.

Jason Rosenhouse's book-length treatment of the puzzle, "The Monty Hall Problem," remains a great (and thorough) source of information on this classic.
