Really good education podcasts
post by Goobahman
currently temping at a job that's very autonomous and boring. good thing is i can listen to stuff on my phone while I do it.
Just wondering what people's favorite podcasts are? particularly education ones to do with neuroscience, psych and social studies.
However as long as it's interesting I'm keen give it a go.
Thanks in advance.

If you're interested in how your body works, I recommend Gerald Cizadlo's lectures. They are biology classes for nursing students at an American religious college. Because of his pathophysiology and physiology podcasts, I'm now able to explain the way nerves transmit signals (for example).
(Edited; I originally called nerves insane.)

Downvoted for bad grammar but:
Podcasts only go so far. I recommend downloading lectures etc. from youtube and converting to mp3. The best downloader-converter I've found for Windows is this, and for Linux, this (read the comments for how to get it to work). I assume you know how to find stuff on youtube so I'll skip the recommendations, but I've probably listened to thousands of hours of stuff from there and haven't run out yet.
