bm246 Podcast Sources

During my recent appearance on Yeast Radio I was asked about where I get my information, in terms of podcasts. In an effort to recommend and share my sources for reporting about the world and a wide range of issues, this program is a list of what I listen to and why.

The links to these podcasts can be found among my podcast links in the blogroll, which can be found in the menu bar to your right. Remember these are not just the podcasts I listen to, they are those that I look to for reporting on issues that have a global impact. Below are a few that I mention that are not in my blogroll.

International Herald Tribune Audio News

Americablog Podcast

On The Media

Mixed Greens

The State We’re In / Amsterdam Forum; from Radio Netherlands

Hispanorama from RNE

La Bas Si J’y Suis

TSF Pessoal e Transmissivél / Sinais

Deutsche Welle

ABC Radio National’s Background Briefing / All in the Mind


Flattr this!

    Hi Mark,

    thanks for disclosing those podcasts to us. Afaik you forgot to link 2600 and somehow down there in the related posts section is a missing entry. Maybe you can link those musicians you use in your show, are there on creative commons?

    Btw. I like the idea with those tiny little images with you around the world. I discovered a few very old ones, when you still were a good looking guy, but don’t you worry, you still have a decent German, French accent 🙂

    Hi there Benny. Lets see…

    Ill add 2600 to the podcast list in the blogroll. they should be there anyway.

    I’m not going to link the musicians basically because I dont want to make it any easier for record labels if they ever decide to, to come find people like me who dont pay much attention to copyright permissions and all that. Anyway I assume readers can copy paste and search for themselves, writing up show notes is already too much work after spending an hour or so recording the show. I gotta try to keep it simple.

    HAHA indeed Im glad you like and noticed the random flickr image bar I put at the bottom of the screen. Its amazing over the years, how many photos I now have on there. So indeed, the random thing can bring up so very old stuff.

    Accents. Well. ha.

    Thanks for all the valuable recommendations, especially for the foreign language sources. International podcasting is boon to language learners.

    I hope the video blog sphere continues to develop, but never at the expense of audio podcasts.
