This article reports on a research project called IMPALA 2, exploring podcasting in the GEES disciplines. The work was funded by the GEES Subject Centre. The project involved five institutions in the UK and explored the broad pedagogical benefits of using podcasting to support learning and teaching in the GEES subjects. The article introduces the background to the project, the research outputs and provides a number of examples of how podcasts can be integrated into the curriculum to address specific teaching and learning challenges faced by GEES colleagues. Some key findings based on students' feedback, particularly in relation to the effectiveness of podcasting in improving learners' cognitive and motivational aspects of learning, are also included.
