LearnOutLoud featured on iTunes


Popped over to iTunes today and was pleasantly surprised to see LearnOutLoud featured on the homepage of the iTunes Podcast Directory. People are really digging The Philosophy Podcast and the Great Speeches in History Podcast (among others). We're well over 30,000 subscribers so thanks to all of you and kudos to David and Seth here for the incredibly hard work they are putting in to make these great content available.

In the words of that great philosopher Borat "I likes!"

The Philosophy Podcast...More Popular than the Man Show?


I'm in awe at how popular our Philsophy Podcast has become. We just recently launched it and yet it has become one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes (currently sitting at #24). My brother has always said that he would be incredibly stoked when one of our podcasts surpassed the Man Show (Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Corolla's podcast) in popularity. Well, that has finally happened!!! (Man Show is currently #29 on iTunes)

Let's compare recent episodes of The Philsophy Podcast vs. The Man Show...

Philosophy Podcast = What is Enlightenment - Now we take a closer look at the world of Immanuel Kant and his essay What is Enlightenment.


The Man Show = Great Moments In Stupidity - Watch a dumbass bash his own head in with a bottle!


Philosophy Podcast = Discourse on Method - This week we showcase a selection from Discourse on Method by Rene Descarte.


The Man Show = Camcorders For Lesbians - CCFL is here to provide young, hot lesbians with camera to film their love. Please, donate now.

Could it be that thoughtful, intelligent content is actually starting to win out over all the mindless drivel that's out there?
Well, let's not get carried away...after all, we're not #1 yet but it is encouraging that in the world of podcasting consisting of a lot of stupid and inane stuff, high-quality podcasts from people like NPR, National Geographic and of course LearnOutLoud are starting to shine through.

LearnOutLoud at the Portable Media Expo

Last month at the Portable Media Expo, David and I had the pleasure of sitting down with Jeff McQuillan from the ESL Podcast and Douglas Welch from over at Career Opportunities to talk about podcasting and education. The portable media expo is getting bigger and better every year and more people from the academic community are catching on to the potential posed with the advent of the ipod. For a half hour we discussed how mainstream education has tested the waters recently with podcasts in the classroom, the pros and cons of making a show for free, and what the future may hold for ongoing education as technology becomes more and more advanced.

We've made this recording available to you in two ways; first you can go to this page and download it for free, or you can retrieve via the Audio Learning Revolution Podcast here. I have to give a special thanks to Lance Anderson and everyone involved with the LA Podcasters for providing the booth space and timeslot for this illuminating panel. Feel free to drop us a line and offer your impressions of what we talked about here. Everything we touch on is a definite work in progress!

The TEDTalks Rock!


The TEDTalks rock! I blogged about this before but it's worth mentioning again because the awesome folks over at the TED conference just keep putting more content up on the TEDTalks podcast feed. I've been listening to a bunch of these lately and just about each and every one blows me away. Like the 19-year-old Princeton student who has. Or the British biogeretologist who thinks that one day in the not-too-distant future humans might live to be 1,000. Fascinating stuff...

If you haven't taken a listen to the TEDTalks yet I'd highly recommend it. Kudos to everyone who has been involved with making them available on the net (for free!). Each one of these talks has the potential to spark ideas that will change the world.

#30 and Climbing - The Emerson Podcast

RalphWaldoEmersonMan.jpg So our Essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson Podcast is getting a lot of buzz this week. It was featured again in the iTunes Podcast Directory, has quickly picked up over two thousand subscribers, and is now the #30 most popular podcast in all of iTunes land (at least as of 9/15/06 6:46 PM PST). This is really sweet. We'd like Ralph Waldo Emerson to top "The Man Show Video Podcast" and we're not that far away, so if you haven't subscribed yet please do!

#85 and Climbing - The Emerson Podcast


So our Essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson Podcast is getting a lot of buzz this week. It was featured in the iTunes Podcast Directory in the Literature category, quickly picked up several hundred new subscribers and is now the #85 most popular podcast in all of iTunes land (at least as of 12:22 AM PST). This is really sweet. In fact, I'll go out on a limb and say that it's probably one of the most intellectual podcasts that's ever been in the Top 100. Of course that's not saying all that much considering that we're currently sharing Top 100 time with the MuggleCast (Harry Potter), The Hills Video Podcast (my gosh I do love that show though...) and my personal favorite Ask a Ninja (love that one too!!!).

If you haven't subscribed yet, just click here to do so. Then just click on the button to subscribe in iTunes and you're all set.

Long live Emerson.
