In 2010, I was founding co-ordinator for the "Thinking Aloud" series of podcasts.

Thinking Aloud is a series of debates by Warwick academics on issues of current interest. The series consists of debates among leading scholars in their field giving insights into new research on topical items. These debates are released as downloadable podcasts, both on the Thinking Aloud site and on iTunesU. The podcasts will be supported by web resources giving further information.

This page will link to podcasts. For more information, please click to visit the Thinking Aloud webpages.

Call for Podcasts

 Thinking Aloud is a new podcasting initiative that allows postgraduate students to create podcasts related to their research interests. Podcasts are one of the fastest-growing forms of academic dissemination, and “Thinking Aloud” provides you with the funding, facilities and support to gain valuable experience and create a reusable recording.

We are accepting proposals from Warwick postgraduates from all faculties at any stage of their study to create podcasts. These should be of interest to an academic and general audience, and can take the form of an audio or video recording. We are happy to receive proposals for:

* One on one interviews with academics about their recent research/publications or your shared interests

* Round table discussions with academics responding to topical issues or news events.

* Interviews with visiting speakers, authors or professionals.

* Podcasts based around your own research.

Accepted proposals will come with a stipend of at least £50 as a contribution towards time spent (more funding will be available for more involved projects).

Participants will gain experience in interviewing, recording and editing. Participants will also create a simple page of supporting web materials to support the podcast. The podcasts will then be available on the Thinking Aloud website and internationally to download via itunesU.

No technical experience is neccesary! The Thinking Aloud team will provide practical support for booking venues and equipment, recording and editing the podcast and web materials, as well as helping with any other arrangements.

If you are interested and would like to find out more or propose a podcast, please contact any of the co-ordinators at the addresses below. Alternatively, visit the website at .
