The British Library has raised the bar for thoughtful and wonderful podcasts with this trove of conversations about exhibits, history, science, and other topics. First-time visitors will note that the podcasts are divided into four sections, which include Social Science Events and Talks, discussions and interviews. It's a good idea to start with the last section listed here, where visitors can listen to talks on the American presidential election system, the Gospel of St. Cuthbert, and the sonnets of William Shakespeare. The Science Events area is quite a find as well, as the musings here cover "What's in a Name: Taxonomy in Crisis?" and "Stem Cells: A Panacea for our Future?" Moving along, visitors can learn about the different sections of the library by taking a listen to the podcasts in the Audio Guides area. Finally, visitors can sign up to learn about new podcasts via their RSS feed.
