Open Culture’s Juicy Podcast Library!

Open Culture explores cultural and educational media (podcasts, videos, online courses, etc.) that’s freely available on the web, and that makes learning dynamic, productive, and fun (Source).

Open Culture is a very lively blog, always exploring and discovering new cultural/educational media hidden in the ever growing media galaxy of the web (Perhaps a bit too US-centric!). My favourite part of this blog, is their wonderful growing podcast collection (I mean library!), which has been indexed very conveniently for anyone interested. Here is my favourite (Most of them!) podcast library categories found on this blog that you might want to explore further:

If you feel a bit lost by all these macro categories (podcast overload!), here are few specific courses or gems to get your learning mind going (Source):

  • Geography of World Cultures - iTunes - Martin Lewis, Stanford University
  • Introduction to Psychology - iTunes - MP3s - Jeremy Wolfe, MIT
  • The Future of the Internet - iTunes - Ramesh Johari, Stanford
  • Open Source and Distribution of Digital Information - iTunes - Feed - Multiple Professors, UC Berkeley
  • Stars, Galaxies, and the Universe - iTunes - Feed - Richard Pogge, Ohio State
  • Entrepreneurship and Business Planning - iTunes - Feed - Mark Juliano, Carnegie Mellon

Sometimes, we need to skip Google, Yahoo, MSN, and iTunes to discover great learning juice efficiently :)
