Digi Doors Open Roundup 9: Podcast Edition!

Learn on the go with this week's edition of #DigiDoorsOpenRoundup!

The doors may have closed on #DigiDoorsOpen this year, but that doesn't mean that the fun has to stop! Each week we will be creating a themed roundup of our digital resources so that you can enjoy a virtual day out from home. 

This week's theme is podcasts! Life can get busy sometimes and if you're anything like us, you love to learn on the go. From maritime misadventures and dramatic duels to escapee coos on the loose, these podcasts are here to keep you entertained as you do the dishes or walk the dog.

This week's venues cover Ayrshire, Fife and Glasgow

Ayrshire 

Auchinleck House: Two newly donated portraits have prompted the telling of a tragic duel that took place at Auchinleck House between a renowned Scottish poet and a prominent Whig party member. Tune in to 'The Last Duel in Scotland' and learn about a conflict where the pen would not prove to be mightier than the sword. 

Fife 

Inverkeithing: The Inverkeithing Heritage Regeneration Podcast has an incredible archive of podcasts waiting to be discovered. No matter your interests you are sure to find an episode to enjoy. Hear about brushes with pirates, maritime misadventures, instances of plague and witchy goings on as you learn about Fife's fascinating history. 

Glasgow 

Pollok House: Tails of mouse breeding, escapee coos and papal approval will keep you company as you tour the grounds of Pollok House with this podcast. You can enjoy this resource from anywhere, but if you live in the Glasgow area and are in need of some fresh air you can listen to this resource as you take a walk through the estate. 

Tune in next week for our next instalment of #DigiDoorsOpenRoundup!
