I travel quite a bit for my job, and I found the trial of this app very interesting it is call LiveATC, which allows you to listen to the Air Traffic controllers live.  It is worth taking a look at the 7 day trial.  From their website:

LiveATC for Windows provides a quick and easy way to listen in on live conversations between pilots and air traffic controllers near many airports around the world. LiveATC for Windows lets you search for airports by name, country and more.
The LiveATC network (http://liveatc.net) is the world's largest network of streaming audio feeds focused solely on aviation, currently covering over 500 airports around the world with over 800 different audio feeds and growing daily!
