At a recent Teacher librarian meeting we looked at podcasts, so I had a bit of an idea about this. I liked the look of some of the ABC programmes and think some faculties may find this source of information a change for their classes and very up-to-date. I found it easy to work with which was also a pleasant surprise.
I'm a firm believer in developing listening skills in students as I see my Year 7's struggle to engage with listening to to an audio book. It takes practice!
