Podcasts: Power Structuralism in Ancient Ontologies Project

I think that Anna Marmodoro's Power Structuralism in Ancient Ontologies project is one of the most interesting metaphysics projects around at the moment. And it got even more interesting now that they have added to their website links to a series of podcasts, which include:

Jon Jacobs: "Is Causation a Relation?"
Peter Van Inwagen: "Relational vs. Constituent Ontologies"

I look forward to listening to all of them!
