New podcasts in the directories and more

Today I have added a whole new directory to my list of podcast directories: Geography podcasts:

Geography of World Cultures (Stanford)
Enhanced podcast (maps are added to the audio) about the spread of languages and religions in the world. We see that the political and cultural boundaries are not the same as the boundaries of language and religion.

Geography 130 (Berkeley) Natural Resources and Population
Lecture series that explains how our earth is populated, why it is populated the way it is, how we use our resources and in the process we come to understand how the system is strained.

Africa Past and Present
A relatively new podcast from Michigan State University acquainting us by means of interviews with interesting people with the continent of Africa.

From Our Own Correspondent
Weekly podcast by the BBC. Correspondents from all over the world give a monologue about the place where they are stationed.

Africa (Stanford, Travel)
Lecture series preparing for a journey to various African countries. The first on the list: Morocco.

Asia (Stanford, Travel)
Lecture series preparing for a journey to South Asia. Insights about the cultures, languages and economy of the south of India.

New this month were:
Africa Past and Present added to the Geography directory
Biography Show added to the History directory
Celtic Myth Podshow added to the Arts and Culture directory (under construction)
Distillations to the Science and to the History directory
Engines of our Ingenuity added to the Science directory
Historypod added to the History directory
