NOVA Podcasting

From PBS and the WGBH Educational Foundation, these free podcasts explore science, health, nature, and technology for the curious. NOVA offers four different podcast and vodcast (video podcast) shows: the NOVA Podcast, the NOVA scienceNOW podcast which is a companion the news-magazine series, the NOVA Vodcast, and the NOVA E = mc2 Podcast, in which NOVA "asked 10 top physicists to explain Einstein's famous equation." From "The Art of Running" to "Wired for Weight," these video and audio files are available through iTunes or My Yahoo! Users can also listen to sample episodes from each series online. These are an excellent and accessible multimedia addition to any classroom to get students to think about the science of the world around them.
