Podcasts for Advanced learners – Freaks and Geeks

As a proud geek, teaching lots of proud geeks, these podcasts hit the mark with my learners. These can also be used with advanced older teens as there’s not too much adult content (disclaimer: always listen first please).

1: One of my favourite Gimlet Media podcasts – Surprisingly Awesome – makes everything super cool. Cement, glue, broccoli. Absolutely fascinating and a great way to combine podcasts with webquests  and activities.


2: A new Gimlet Media podcast – Science Vs – takes on really emotive themes and looks at the science and facts behind them. Brilliant for academic English learners!


3: Freakonomics – based on the book – it’s a weird and wonderful podcast.
