Internet based audio recordings were an innovation in the second year medical student respiratory morbid anatomy teaching. Short auditory stimuli were linked with a case study questions and photographs of anatomical specimens. These link pathological lesions directly to the signs and symptoms of disease. These were extremely popular with learners and accessible outside the laboratory environment. They were made to ensure all learners had equable access to the resources and an awareness of learner and pathologist teaching time being pressurised. They link pathological lesions directly to the signs and symptoms of disease. Evolution of this teaching compared favourably with previous 2 years evaluation of resource heavy teaching with physical interaction in the laboratory with the three dimensional specimen. Pod casts are a way of giving distilled and thoughtful stimuli in a resource conscious and accessible way. However, interaction with the physical three dimensional specimen is still invaluable and must be encouraged. This evaluation has encouraged the development of similar resources for different body systems.
