I'm tackling this thing in reverse order and, in the spirit of the thing, here's a podcast of me talking about, er, podcasts.
It may be useful to list the podcasts I refer to in the talk
- In Our Time with Melvyn Bragg
- JISC Podcasts
- Talking with Talis [This seems to have withered on the vine, with no new episodes since February]
- Le Collège de France where we learn, among other things, that the French for podcasting is la ballodiffusion
- France Culture Podcasts
- Herodotus Podcasts (and many more classics podcasts, though more Latin than Greek). Helpfully, there are two versions of the Herodotus podcasts, one at normal reading speed and one at a slower speed for study
