It’s been more than a month since we last updated our iTunes list of top educational podcasts. A quick glance reveals that language-focused podcasts continue to dominate. Almost all of the top podcasts are dedicated to helping folks learn Spanish, French, German and Italian, and also some Japanese and Mandarin Chinese. Meanwhile, Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing continues to make a strong showing. And we’re otherwise seeing podcasts from universities drop off the list, but that’s perhaps partly because there’s recently been a shortage of interesting material coming out of these collections. Or at least that’s been our impression. Lastly, you’ll note that there’s only one new podcast on this list (see it highlighted in red). So it seems that folks are returning to their favorites again and again.
