Plants and people - for iPad/Mac/PC

A technology, education podcast from The Open University

What techniques are used to keep crops safe from insects? What happens to tomatoes when they ripen? This selection of audio slideshows covers a broad range of topics that relate to the nature of both plants and vegetables. From touring the largest display green houses in the world at the Eden Project to genetically engineering crops for African famers, this collection of case studies reveals fascinating insights into the cutting edge work conservationists and bio-chemists are doing in the field of botany. This material forms part of the Open University course S173 Plants and people.

Information for podcasters

Get a universal link is a so-called universal link: it will automatically open Google Podcasts on Android phones, Apple Podcasts on iOS devices, or this page. Both Apple Podcasts and the Google Podcasts player are pre-installed on every phone.

A QR code to this URL is a great way to share your podcast. You’ll find a QR code at the top of this page on desktop. It’s particularly ideal for business cards, posters or conventions.

But - you are always better to fully control your own podcast and not rely on any third-party - even us. So, here’s the code to add a universal link to your own website. Copy/paste this HTML into a new file on your website, and link to that instead.

Don’t code? Here are more universal link providers you can use.

Privacy: The player will download audio directly from the host if you listen. That shares data (like your IP address or details of your device) with them.
Affiliate links: This page links to Apple Podcasts. We may receive a commission for purchases made via those links.
Cache: This podcast page made Sep 5 at 08:50:10 UTC. It’s scheduled for update on Oct 5. Rebuild this page now
