Sources for Podcasts and Open Educational Resources
As we collectively feel and attempt to address Zoom fatigue and general overwhelm, we have compiled this list in collaboration with the wonderful folks at Lauinger and Gelardin. Please explore the resources below to find Open Educational Resources and locate podcasts to support your course.
Searching for Podcasts
- Listen Notes – Search a database of nearly 2 million podcasts then curate your own playlists. Check out the “Explorer” section to get recommendations based on similar podcasts.
- iTunes Podcasts – Search 700,000 Apple Podcasts by title, topic, guest, host, content, and more. Subscribe and be notified as soon as new episodes become available.
- Search Google by topic + podcast. For example a search for literature + podcast found: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-new-yorker-fiction/id256945396 and https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-history-of-literature/id1048375034
