I'm looking for sources of audio that I can make into exercises. As I want to make the exercises available to other teachers, I'm looking for audio content that is that doesn't have copyright limits. The kind of audio I'm hoping to find would be news, conversations, anecdotes and jokes and perhaps telephone conversations.

Recently, someone posted a link to VOA.com, and I have downloaded some of their 'Special English' programs (they are excellent for intermediate learners).

I know I could record my own stuff but a variety of accents and situations would be better.

Any ideas?

If you are at a non-profit school, the "fair use" exemption applies.

Or, you can safely use up to 1/10th of a commercial recording for classroom use.

Why don't you look for copyright material, too, and then ask for permission to use it?

There are lots of audio clips useful for intermediate listening on the National Public Radio site.
