“Absolutely Intercultural!” is a wonderful ESL podcast created by Anne Fox and Laurent Borgmann. Winner of Edublogs’ 2006 Award for Best Audio and/or Video Blog, “Absolutely Intercultural!” has been on the web since March 2006. Topics include things like how holidays are celebrated in various countries, how music can connect people of different cultures, cultural aspects of blogs, and much, much more. Everyone is sure to find something that will interest him or her. Each podcast is accompanied by a text post summarizing the topics discussed on the show, but there are no transcripts, so understanding the shows will be challenging for those with less than intermediate proficiency in listening.
You can subscribe to the show through iTunes or RSS feed (you’ll need an account with an aggregator such as Bloglines, Google, My Yahoo (In Yahoo Services, choose Feed Alerts), or Live Bookmarks, but these are free) or simply check it out at your leisure on the web. New shows are posted every other Friday.
