Attached is a document that lists the history podcasts that I subscribe through iTunes. With more than a quarter-million podcasts available through the iTunes podcast directory alone, it can be difficult to navigate the choices. The document provides a short description of each with a direct URL for their website as well as a direct link for subscribing through the iTunes Podcast directory. As a history teacher, I have found them enormously helpful for my own education. I have received permission from a few of them to replay selected episodes as assigned homework for my students. I use Nuance's DragonSpeck voice-to-text software to create transcripts for students who prefer or need the printed transcript rather than listening. Some students report they listen as they read the transcription. These history podcasts are part of the motivation and inspiration for this "Historic Voices" podcast.
