52 Weeks to Better Genealogy - Week 31 - Podcasts

Amy Coffin's 31st challenge for 52 Weeks to Better Genealogy is:

Listen to a podcast. A podcast is a digital media file that you can download and listen to any time. There are some wonderful genealogy podcasts including Genealogy Gems and Genealogy Guys (click the POD on either site to listen). You can find many other podcasts on iTunes (free, but you need to sign up). Your task this week is to listen to a podcast and experience this form of media for learning. If you are familiar with podcasts, pick a new one in a different subject such as history, business or anything else that may fit with your genealogy interests.

I love podcasts and listen to all the genealogy ones and many others too.

Be sure to check out the UK National Archives Podcast series. It is usually a recorded lecture about UK research. Also take a listen to A History of the World in 100 Objects. This is a radio show from the BBC where the host describes an object in the British museum and discusses the history of it.

What is your favorite podcast to listen to? I'd love to give it a listen and add it to my list.
