Geographical remit: 


Pod Academy makes lively, accessible podcasts about academic research.  An education charity, we aim give our 200,000 listeners around the world access to new ideas and information emerging from  research programmes in universities, provide a lively and intelligent forum on current issues, and enable the dissemination of research findings beyond the walls of the university


We make podcasts and broadcast them on our website, podacademy.org.  

As well as audio podcasts we also provide transcripts, notes and links to further information for those who want to dig deeper.

We have 4 channels – Arts and Culture, Business and Economics, Humanities and Social Science and Science and Environment.  We broadcast under a Creative Commons licence, and as a result, organisations that find the information in the podcasts valuable are welcome to host them on their own websites and circulate them to their supporters and beneficiaries free of charge.

As a charity that works online, we use social media to promote our work.  We also run training courses for anyone who wants to learn about podcasting, as well as for researchers who want to promote their research.
