Auditorium was a series of audio cassettes (or 'medikassets', a trade-marked term) distributed for free by the pharmaceutical company Winthrop Laboratories (now owned by Sanofi). They produced a number of well-known medicines such as Fortral (an analgesic) and Benoral (a treatment for arthritis which can be dissolved in tea, coffee or hot chocolate). Promotion for these products appears on the cassette sleeves.
