Here are some links to podcasts I listen to.
- Science in Action discusses science in an accessible way, but is still interesting to those with a science background.
- Material World is a semi-random collection of short discussions on scientific research and news.
- Ask About Britain is designed to help Mandarin-speaking students of English, but is handy for practicing Mandarin too!
Books and leisure
- The Ferretbrain site puts out occasional book, game, film etc.-related podcasts, which are a bit of fun. See also Websites. Mature content.
- HP Podcraft is not only an excellent name, but a podcast discussing HP Lovecraft's writing in a conversational, accessible way.
