The National Geographic Society Offers Many Outstanding Podcasts

 

The National Geographic Society LogoI grew up with National Geographic Magazine. It was an escape, from the mundane reality of my childhood, a monthly trip to a world of the fantastic adventures and exotic locales.

I was browsing the itunes music store today when I stumbled across the fact that The National Geographic Society now offers podcasts. I have listened to a few and found that they meet the National Geographic Society’s very high standards.

These short audio and video programs are educational and very entertaining , for young and old. They expose you to the various cultures from around the world. The best part is, all of them are available, free of charge!

If you don’t know what podcasting is be sure to check out their New to Podcasting page. Podcasting is not just for people with ipod’s or portable music players any longer!
