Venerable Ekagatta discusses sutta 12.23 from the Samyutta Nikaya: Upanisa Sutta - Proximate Cause.

Ajahn Ekaggata discusses sutta 12.12 from the Samyutta Nikaya: Moliyaphagguna Sutta. This is page 541 in 'The Connected Discourses of the Buddha', by Bhikkhu Bodhi. 

"Venerable Moḷiyaphagguna asks who eats the consciousness food. The Buddha says the question is improper, as it assumes a self as agent. Rather, all the factors of dependent origination are simply natural conditions and have nothing to do with a “self”," Sutta Central.

Venerable Ekagatta discusses 82nd sutta of the Majjhima Nikaya: Ratthapala Sutta, "To Ratthapala".

"A wealthy young man, Raṭṭhapala, has a strong aspiration to go forth, but has to prevail against the reluctance of his parents. Even after he became a monk, his parents tried to persuade him to disrobe. The discourse ends with a moving series of teachings on the fragility of the world." Sutta Central.
