Latin Poetry Podcast

Dickinson College offers a great resource for Latin teachers: the Latin Poetry Podcast. Full of short, managable chunks of poetry by the likes of Ovid, Horace, Catullus, Vergil, and Martial, each podcast features a reading of the original Latin, a literal translation, and a short synopsis of the poem giving context and history.

I use these texts and podcasts often for sight reading exercises. They are also a great resource for teaching meter and spoken Latin.
