Excellent idea, I must look further into this:
Pod Academy is an independent, not-for-profit platform for podcasts on academic research. Set up by a group of academics, techies and journalists, it aims to inform public debate and uncover intriguing and challenging new ideas.
We are always looking for interesting new research, including research that throws light on events in the news, and work with researchers to develop entertaining podcasts that are accessible to the general public, as well as rigorous in their scholarship.
I read about it in Times Higher Education.
