Current Science and Technology Podcasts

  • Wide selection of offerings
  • Nothing significant
I’m a big iPod user, so I’ll probably buy one of the first iPhones when they come out, but I must confess to not downloading too many podcasts. Don’t get me wrong, I think this format is a great idea. I am just more of a reader than a listener when it comes to scientific information. Podcasts, however, are catching the world by storm, both in audio and video formats, and the scientific world is warming to them, with virtually every major publisher providing audio in that format or planning to do so. A broad source of scientific podcasts can be found in the Current Science and Technology Podcasts site. Where other publications provide material focused on the discipline(s) in their written journals, this site spans a wide spectrum of science, including Health/Biology, Earth/Space, Tech/Engineering, Nanotech/Nanomedicine, and Events/Presentations. There’s also a section of videocasts.
