Welcome to the first ever intercultural podcast which has been on the air since 2006 and has won a number of international podcast awards. ‘Absolutely Intercultural’ is its name and it is the longest-running podcast in the world to deal with intercultural issues. We release a new episode every month on the first Friday, looking at all intercultural aspects of human intercultural communication. For example, we hear from students on foreign work placements, look at inter-cultural aspects of international sports events, ask how teachers can make use of inter-cultural exercises and simulations in their classroom and share with you any intercultural gossip we come across. ‘Absolutely Intercultural’ is not so much about passing on information but more about starting an intercultural dialogue between the makers, the contributors and the listeners. So, join in the conversation, the rest is just bits, bytes and RSS-feeds!
If you would like to use Absolutely Intercultural in your teaching then you may find some pointers in this article published in the TESL Electronic Journal in March 2008. http://tesl-ej.org/ej44/a4.html

Although we give our time freely, running and hosting a podcast since 2006 inevitably incurs costs which include webhosting, site protection and maintenance, domain name registration and recording equipment. Up until now this has been covered by the owners and we now want to make the podcast more self-financing. However, the aim is not to make money but only to cover the running costs. Read more about how we do this below.
