A podcast is a recorded or live show that you can download to a player or play on your computer. There are many different kinds of podcasts - radio shows, talk shows, music podcasts, blogger podcasts, course and lesson podcasts, and more.


I listen to podcasts with an MP3 player, and also on my computer, using earphones and a wireless headphone set. I usually am doing something else as I listen. I do other things -- fix the house, work in the garden, etc. while I have a podcast playing.


There are many podcasts that are of value to the non-traditional student. I have included some here, along with some websites where you can discover your own, personalized podcasts to listen to. There are many podcasts, and most are completely FREE.

I like podcasts because they are portable, plus you can also play them on your computer without going through a lot of extra work. Most aren't too long, so you can switch to another podcast (or have your player do it automatically) quickly and start new stories or advice.

There are podcasts for virtually every hobby or interest. I personally enjoy learning type podcasts or talk shows, but there are also great music shows and interviews, too. There are podcasts for classes now, so you may already be listening to a podcast for one of your classes.


Please feel free to email me to suggest a podcast that you feel would be of benefit to non-traditional students.

Following are some podcasts I have listened to that I would like to share with you. They are just a sampler of the many different podcasts that can be of value to non-traditional students.
