OECD Podcasts

Founded in 1961, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an intergovernmental economic organization whose aim is to "build better policies for better lives." Through an international collaboration of governments, policy makers and citizens, the OECD works to establish international standards and seeks solutions to a wide variety of social, economic and environmental challenges. The OECD publishes recommendations, analyses and extensive datasets, all of which are accessible to Indiana University affiliates through IU Libraries, via the OECD iLibrary. The OECD iLibrary is a great resource for publications and data on some of the greatest challenges currently facing global society. 

OECD iLibrary also offers educational entertainment on these topics! As of October 2021, the OECD Podcast series is available through the OECD iLibrary. This collection of podcasts features interviews with experts and figures from the OECD and beyond, with a focus on examining key global policy issues. Each podcast is available for online streaming for free, and OECD iLibrary users benefit from full transcripts in PDF format as well as the option to download podcast episodes as MP3 files for offline listening. Recent episodes cover such topics as young people and the future of work, education equity and the lessons of COVID-19, and the ethical challenges of artificial intelligence.
