Help me do a crash course in Wagner's Ring Cycle in general and Siegfried in particular!

I'm going to a dress rehearsal of the SF Opera's performance of Siegfried on the 29th, and I'd love to be able to attend with some knowledge of how the Ring Cycle generally and Siegfried specifically works and what to look out for. I'm especially interested in Wagner's use of musical motifs in the opera so that I can be an attentive listener. Can you recommend resources online that will help me get the most out of this experience? Podcasts or anything with musical excerpts would be especially helpful. I already checked out this post
but hoped the hive might know of further resources, especially Siegfried-specific ones.
