The journal Nature has started a number of science-themed podcasts, and this particular site features their "Chempod" series. The series got underway in March 2006, and the podcasts are designed specifically for the chemistry community. Currently, the site features over a dozen podcasts, and the topics covered in recent installments include DNA 'circuit boards', protein sensing with gold nanoparticles, and applications for mass spectrometry. Visitors are encouraged to download each podcast, and teachers may wish to share these insights with their students in the classroom. Within the "Site Resources" area, visitors can sign up for their newsletter and their RSS feed. The site also includes listings for job opportunities in the "NatureJobs" area along the right-hand side of the homepage.
