If you are not familiar with www.designingsound.org make sure you head there ASAP and read everything they have. Each month the site picks a theme and ask the audio community to contribute articles, ideas and experiments that fit the theme. In the past our podcast has regularly timed episodes to match up with the DS themes. For January 2015 the theme was “Education”, specifically in relation to professional audio. Our most recent episode, #31, was part of this theme as we interviewed Brenda Jaskulske from the University of North Texas.
Additionally both of the hosts on Tonebenders wrote articles that are featured on the site as well. René wrote about different types of learning, and Timothy shared some thoughts on the future of Internships in Audio Post.
Please head over to DesigningSound.org to check them out.

Hiss and a Roar has a xmas bundle (and contest) out there.
Chuck Russom released a Glock 18mm handgun
Boom library does the advent calendar where they sometimes give sounds away, and often discount libraries.
Twisted Tools has a drum pack too. (H/T to Dave DeLizza)
The Sound Catcher also has a SFX collection currently available at no cost. It is a kind of greatest hits from the libraries they sell.
