Manhattan's 92nd Street Y is constantly hosting interesting panels and Q&As with actors, directors, musicians, writers and other creative types. Now the non-profit cultural institute is making video and audio recordings of these events available to the public for no charge, The New York Times reports.

Called "92 Y On Demand," the audio and video channel allows users to search by topic, date and artist/speaker's name.  "With over 1,000 archival recordings, new ones added every week and a growing Livecast line-up, you can engage with a unique and diverse cross-section of culture and history," according to the site.
