As a UC San Diego student, one of the best parts about your college life is listening to lectures via UCSD Podcast and having interesting conversations with interesting people about interesting ideas.
The Current Podcast is the official podcast of UC San Diego IT Services. You can also subscribe to Spotify, Soundcloud, Stitcher, Podbean, Google Podcast, and Apple Podcasts!
UCSD’s podcasting service was established for instructional use to benefit students. Podcasts are taken down at the end of every quarter (10 weeks Fall-Spring and 5 weeks in the summer).
If you’re enjoying a podcast, be sure to subscribe and download the lectures. Once the podcast has been taken offline, faculty rarely approve their reposting.
