Audio

Audio files from all of the sessions held during the Hearings on Competition and Consumer Protection in the 21st Century that began in September 2018 and continued through December 2018 are available below. Files for hearings held in 2019 will be added as they become available.

The table lists all sessions (opening remarks, panels, presentations, closing remarks, etc.) for every hearing in the Session Topics column. To access the audio for a session, click on the session title. If you’re interested in all of the sessions from a specific hearing, click on the link to the hearing in the Hearing column.

How to listen

All audio files are in mp3 format. The easiest way to listen is to use the audio player in the browser of your computer or mobile device.

Alternatively, you can download the files, but be aware they may be quite large (between 100 and 200 MB). To download and listen to a file on an iOS device such as an iPhone, you will likely need to download the file to your computer first, then use iTunes to move it to your device.
