Does anyone like listening to podcasts ?

As an alternative to the radio on my hour (often more)-long drive to and from work at the university, I have taken to listening to podcasts. There are such an enormous amount to choose from. My particular favourite at the moment is very much work-related. it is called The mfltwitterati podcasts and it showcases lots of what is happening in the area of teaching languages with technology. Some great ideas that are really inspiring – and often the ideas in themselves are really simple. Often the way, isn’t it ?

On a non-work note, my big favourite has to be Gardener’s Question Time or GQT to those “in the know” !! A sign of middle age, when your favourite thing to listen to is a gardening programme !!!

Of course, the priority of the week is, has always been and will always be catching up on The Archers Omnibus. I first started listening to The Archers when my eldest son was a baby and he is about to turn 25 next month so well, 25 years ago !! My my !! But even 25 years ago, the radio soap had been already running for years. It began post-war and was aiming at giving people small-scale farming, land management, gardening advice and all based around life in a small country village in the imagined county of Borsetshire. I have often thought to myself that the village where I live is like a miniature French version of Ambridge with its different characters. It runs for 10 minutes every day with an hour long “catch-up” as the omnibus edition every Sunday morning. So, now that podcasts exist, I just have to download and that is my Monday commute listening sorted !!
