Here is our introductory blurb.
Welcome to the first ever intercultural podcast. `Absolutely
Intercultural' is its name and, as far as we know, this is the first
podcast in the world to deal with intercultural issues. We'll be
releasing a new episode every second Friday evening, looking at all
intercultural aspects of human intercultural communication. For
example, we'll be hearing from students on foreign work placements,
looking at inter-cultural aspects of the forthcoming World Cup,
asking how teachers can make use of inter-cultural exercises and
simulations in their classroom and sharing with you any
intercultural gossip we come across. `Absolutely Intercultural'
won't be so much about passing on information but more about
starting an intercultural dialogue between the makers, and you, the
contributors and listeners.
