Podcasts are a really straightforward and convenient way to keep up with the latest developments in Geography. If you have never listened to a podcast before they are really easy to download. The best way to do it is to subscribe through Apple store and they will be downloaded directly to your iPad or phone. Otherwise you can listen directly through the websites.
Here are a few of my favourites-

BBC Radio 4 Costing the Earth looks at man’s effect on the environment and how the environment reacts, questioning accepted truths, challenging those in charge and reporting on progress towards improving the world.
The BBC World Service One Planet series is currently off air but you can look at some archive episodes. One Planet covers environmental, development and agriculture stories, dealing with the impact of humankind on the natural world. Each episode generally lasts for around 15 minutes.
The economist have recently launched a new daily podcasts that explains many things that are useful for human geography.
