This is a new venture for the LSCP and we are currently in the process of recording our own materials with local colleagues from the partnership in the meantime we have found a few from trusted partners that you might find interesting.
A podcast is an audio show, usually spread across a series of episodes, which can be downloaded from the Internet and listened to either on a computer, laptop, mobile phone or MP3 player. Episodes range from lasting just a few minutes where others can be much longer. I've indicated the duration along with some information about each below so you can choose dependent on how much time you have.
Other podcasts are available via mainstream platforms such as Apple Podcasts and Audible (subscriptions may apply).
There is no charge for accessing these Podcasts. This is a selection that I thought might be useful or I found to be interesting.
