Podcasts Podcasts are audio programmes that can be funny and witty or educational and mind expanding. There are masses to choose from and we encourage you to explore and search on topics that interest you. There are a few ways of accessing podcasts including apps such as BBC Sounds, Stitcher, Spotify, iTunes or SoundCloud. Some of our recommendations are: Evil Genius with Russell Kane – Changing the way we see heroes and villains in history. 13 Minutes to the Moon Gossipmongers - David Earl, Joe Wilkinson and Poppy Hillstead read out unsubstantiated rumours sent in by listeners. At the end of each episode they choose their favourite piece of gossip and help spread it further by getting Poppy to shout it out the window.
