Listen and Learn: What Are the Best Podcasts for Teachers?

If you are new to podcasting, then you may want to read my blog post titled 3 Tremendous Reasons for Tuning In To Teaching Podcasts. In that post, I explain the pros for tuning in to teaching podcasts.

So now that you have discovered the reason you should be listening let's talk about the podcasts you will want to hear. I know there are so many great podcasts from which to choose.

So you are an educator, or you are interested in teaching podcasts. You would think it would be pretty simple to search for teaching podcasts. It actually isn't! I kept getting directed to yoga podcasts or other learning things that yes are great, but not what I exactly wanted to hear. So I decided to share some of the six best teaching podcasts that I could find. I listened to each one. All five have something to offer. They differ from format to length to subjects covered. Either way, I think you will find value, and you will no longer stumble upon podcasts that don't precisely fit the educator description.
