Help me learn how to use my google Nexus 7 Tablet and listen to podcast

Well I finally made it over to the tablet, after being a long time hold out. I see “kids” reading powerpoint lectures and taking notes on theirs, so I finally decided it was an investment in my education (I’m a grad student). I read the Nexus 7 book that came in my “library” but I still have a lot of questions. Please help so that I can get the most out of this tablet.
In a nutshell, I want to be able to record class lectures, and see how long the lecture is (like you can do in itunes) and easily jumpback/reverse 10 secs or so, if I missed something. Is there a good audio player app you can recommend?
I am mostly reading PDF files. What is the best way to view these docs? in Quick office or Kindle? Regardless, how can I see the page numbers when I am reading? In addition, it looks like you can take notes and highlight when reading, how do I do that?
I notice that there are some compatibility issues. Is there an app to download the “real” powerpoint? Also, how do you swipe to the next slide? it is not as easy as I would like, I am obviously doing something wrong.
Lastly, since I am studying women and public policy, I would really love to be able to listen to or watch my favorite policy wonk- Melissa Harris Perry. How can I get the show for when I am offline? I found Rachel Maddow on Stitcher, but I can not figure out how to get the full show audio of MHP.
