Education Podcasts

Angela Watson’s Truth for Teachers
Another great professional-development podcast created by an instructional coach and former teacher. At a quick ten minutes per episode, posted every Sunday, this podcast is designed to speak life, encouragement, and truth into the minds and hearts of educators — and to get teachers and educators energized for the week ahead.

The Bedley Brothers
Scott and Tim, are teacher-of-the-year brothers from California who live and breathe teaching and learning. They interview high-profile guests in 30-plus-minute shows, where they discuss a variety of topics, full of engaging anecdotes and practical info.

Cult of Pedagogy
Former middle school language arts teacher Jennifer Gonzalez has a knack for finding the hard problems that plague educators and offering solid solutions in short, uncluttered episodes that cover teaching strategies, classroom management, and edtech. In her podcasts, Gonzalez often interviews experts to help shed light on common challenges in episodes like “Why It’s So Hard for Teachers to Take Care of Themselves” and “Three Surprising Reasons Students Don’t Get Into Top Colleges.”

Every Classroom Matters
A bi-weekly show that interviews teachers and professionals who have impactful practices for any classroom. Winner of Best Talk Show Host in Education, teacher and Edutopia blogger Vicki Davis leads a ten-minute conversation about a variety of best practices.

Science Underground
A two-minute weekly science podcast is hosted by scientist and Edutopia blogger Ainissa Ramirez and journalist Bill Retherford. Short segments target students and adults as the hosts share lesson ideas that regularly align with NGSS standards.

10-Minute Teacher Podcast
Vicki Davis is a classroom teacher, author, blogger, Edutopia contributor, and now daily podcast host, and her prodigious contributions to improving education are rivaled only by her passion for her students’ success. Her podcast offers a different theme each weekday (Motivational Mondays, EdTech Tool Tuesdays, Wonderful Classroom Wednesdays, Thought Leader Thursdays, and 5-Idea Fridays). The podcast offers a balance of inspiration and practical tips. Davis is faithful to the 10-minute format, so you can take in an episode during a quick errand or workout.

Moving at the Speed of Creativity
In one of the longest running podcasts, producer Wesley Fryer records ponderings, anecdotes, and sometimes whole presentations that he attends at conferences. His podcast centers largely around edtech with podcasts that vary in length and release date. But when Wesley shares something, it’s always worth a listen.

Talks With Teachers
Brian Sztabnik talks with master teachers and asks them about the art and science of their craft to provide “inspiring ideas for English teachers.” You’ll find practical tips, but the real genius here is Sztabnik’s ability to ask great questions. Interviewees include numerous teachers of the year, as well as educators and authors like Rafranz Davis and Scott Barry Kaufman.

School Psyched Podcast
Hosted by three school psychologists, who invite experts to share their insights on a range of topics, including evidence-based social and emotional learning, gifted students, legal considerations, and more controversial issues like racial representation in special education. The episodes are an archive of live video chats hosted on YouTube Live. The hosts take questions and comments via YouTube Live, Facebook, and Twitter (#psychedpodcast).
