Yale University has introduced an official podcast, the Yale Podcast, that features lectures and speeches given at the University by professors, alumni and other notable guest speakers.

According to Yale spokeswoman Helaine Klasky, the podcast has received over 50,000 hits in its first week and has been met with much excitement throughout the Yale community.

“We have been thinking about launching this type of feature for some time,” Klasky said. “Once we started approaching faculty about participating, they were very excited ‚Ķ and alumni have long expressed an interest in this type of program as a way to stay connected with the University.”

A recent podcast featured Madeline Albright discussing public service in the age of globalization (MP3).

Klasky said the content of the podcast will continue to evolve over time and will soon include recordings of professors and other faculty made specifically for the podcast.

“For the introduction of the podcast, we recorded many lectures from Reunion Weekend and the Yale Tomorrow Campaign launch,” Klasky said. “We are continuing to choose from these lectures and have also begun creating our own podcasts ‚Ķ For all the lectures, it is important that they stand alone – it is never necessary to follow a series in order to appreciate a single recording.”
