This paper studies students' experiences and expectations on the use of podcasts in learning English pronunciation in Igboland. The study is based on a survey where two universities were studied. A proportional sampling technique with the aid of a structured questionnaire was used to elicit information. The data gathered were analysed using mean, standard deviation, t-test, and ANOVA with the aid of Statistical tool for the Social sciences. The study concluded that the students agreed to the fact that podcasts improved their English pronunciation. The hypotheses tested showed that there was no significant difference in the use of podcasts with regard to the students' internet usage habits, language proficiency level, or gender. Thus, it was concluded that this technology was appropriate for second language learning.
