Anthropology and Neuroscience Podcasts

Similar to the earlier post on video resources online, I have compiled here a list of podcasts for your perusal. I have split them into neuroscience and anthropology categories. And please, if you have some worthy additions to make, please comment below!

One general place to look is PodFeed, where you can do searches for your favorite topics. Here’s one I found from Disarmament Insight on What Do We Know About Levels of Human Violence?

You can also try sites like Open Culture’s Podcast Library, Podcasting News, Blinkx (primarily video) and Radio OpenSource.

You can also check out two great audio resources online, National Public Radio and the British Broadcasting Company. Here’s a piece from NPR, Lack of Sleep Linked to Later Health Problems. And one from BBC, What Factors Determine What We Eat? I found these through word searches such as anthropology, brain and culture from the main page.

    Broadcast and podcast
    Australian Broadcasting Corporation

    There’s an associated blog also. Alongwith 4 weeks of audio (and a full archive of transcripts here

  2. I found this post and this site while researching a blog post of my own. Being as I suffer from depression, I have a marked interest in all things neuroscientific so I was thrilled that I stumbled upon this blog.

    FYI, I wrote up a post referencing this excellent list of neuroscience podcasts, but I’m using Blogger Draft mode scheduling so it won’t show up until Tuesday. I hope.

    Thanks again for this site!
