New podcasts in January 2010 - Anne is a Man

Yesterday I gave the list of podcasts that were recommended by readers. Today I want to give the list of new podcasts I mentioned in my posts this month - in these yesterday's mentions are not included. Tomorrow I would normally give the full list of podcasts, but that will go differently from now on - more on that tomorrow.

This month I got to mention a couple of podcasts in languages I do not master, Spanish and Swedish. The short reviews were guest reviews as it were, and I would love to publish good guest posts about podcasts in other languages.

En Akademisk Kvart (mention, site, feed). An academic podcast in Swedish delivering concise talks (15 minutes on average) about a wide variety of topics, many of which are historic.

La Rosa de los vientos (mention, site, feed)
A three hours radio program in Spanish, about history, archeology, astronomy, science, secret services and much more.

Pasajes de la historia (mention, site, feed)

Ciencia y Genios (mention, site, feed)

El Bloguipodio (mention, site, feed)
