We haven’t visited the list of iTunes’ top educational podcasts since April. So it’s time for another look…What we’ve got here is pretty much a case of “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.” Or, put differently, even though two months have passed, it is still foreign language lesson podcasts that are ruling the day, particularly podcasts that will teach you Spanish, French and Italian. Also, the ever popular “Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing” is still holding strong. The one major new addition is a free audio book of Pride and Prejudice. Audio books have almost never appeared on this list, so the #2 position of this podcast testifies to the enduring popularity of this great Jane Austen work. Lastly, it’s worth mentioning that no audio from universities has made it into the top 25. There is something just a little bit wrong with this picture, wouldn’t you say?
