I feel like people aren't freaking out enough about how awesome it is that big universities are publishing their lectures online, some of my favorite ones are

Human Behavioral Biology, Sapolsky (Stanford)

I turned these into podcasts that you can download here

about behavioral biology letures, in order to fall in love with Sapolsky, check his short talk on toxoplasmosis parasite

will add more stuff to this folder with time.
