450 podcasts reviewed on Anne is a Man

Yesterday I updated my Podcast List. By now I have reviewed 450 different podcasts. There are near 2000 posts on the blog and with this I hope I can continue to offer you a good source for finding new good podcasts.

New podcasts that were reviewed in the past period are:

An Israeli podcast has begun to publish: BioCast which does fifteen minute biographies of the most divergent characters - from scientists to pop musicians, biocast does them all. In addition, it has two tiny rubrics at the end of each show, one in which for half a minute little children associate on the theme of the show (for example on the question what is an explosion after the bio of Robert E. Oppenheim) and after that something that sounds like a Rabbi giving his Judaism inspired take on the same theme.
