Media: Here Comes Slate Education Podcasts

On air radioEducation writer Dana Goldstein told Facebook and Twitter last week that she was recording a series of education podcasts for Slate, including the flipped classroom, gifted ed, choosing a school, and international comparisons.  

It debuts in September, according to Goldstein.  

In simple terms, podcasts are like a radio show -- sometimes they feature much the same content that has been broadcast already -- except you can subscribe to them and play them whenever you want, download them, etc.

There are currently a handful of education podcasts out there, including Bloomberg EDU, Harvard's EdCast, BAM Radio Network, American Radio Works' weekly offering.  In addition, education is featured occasionally on This American Life.  

There have been along the way several other education-themed radio shows.  For a time, I hosted amonthly reporters' roundup on education, and for a much longer time John Merrow had an education show on NPR.

Any others out there that I'm missing, current or former?
