15 Education Podcasts All Teachers Should Be Listening To

I don’t know about you guys, but I am obsessed with podcasts. I used to spend my time listening to Cardi B and Old Dominion and Shakra, but now I’m onto podcasts.

I feel like I am much more productive listening to them while I’m running or on my commute as opposed to music. I personally listen to a wide variety of podcasts, and some of my favourite are ones about education and teaching. They are often very motivational to listen to on the way to work and they give me great ideas for my classroom! It’s like free PD!

So, without further ado, here are some of my favourite educational podcasts:


Teaching to the Top is a great listen for really great ideas that are immediately use-able in the classroom. I always feel motivated after listening!
