4 Educational podcasts for curious teachers
The ones who interact with me know what a podcast freak I am for more than a decade now, when it was still a hustle to transfer a podcast to my mp3 player. All of it to bring new and fresh learning experiences to my students. Even when I didn’t have connection, it worked. When I didn’t have a textbook, I had wonderful authentic content. And if I had planned to use it, then podcasts were great complement to my lesson plan. Nowadays, no need to mention its power, as technologies made streaming and downloadable resources just one click away. And we have a myriad of great content, interviews, stories at every teacher’s reach.
Some years ago, I made a list of some of my favorite podcasts for educators, and here I am, ready to revisit that list with laser focus. I want to keep it short and sweet for you, who is here is me, and want just the essential list of podcasts to enjoy yourself, learn something new every day and use the ideas in your next class.
My list of podcasts to inspirare you
So here are my four edtech podcasts that will change your perspective on how to teach. They will be an idea generator and refresher for your classroom. Your brain will fry with so many new insights to experiment with your students. 😉
- The Backwards Podcast
AJ Juliani is a machine of wonderful educational content. He has books, shares tons of great ideas and reflection on his Newsletter, he has powerful online courses, and his podcast is no different. The Backwards podcast has insightful interviews with leading educators. Worth listening every episode. Oh, and don’t forget to have a notepad near you. You’ll need it to remember the wonderful ideas they share.
- Edventures in Tech

- The Cult of Pedagogy Podcast
Jenifer Gonzalez is still one of my favorites! She is objective, and yet profound. Her podcast, as well as her blog posts, are deep, full of references. And her guests always bring new perspective to our pedagogy. I’m a huge fan. Worth starting with Jenifer and her Cult of Pedagogy.
- The Eduprotocols Podcast
When I first heard Jon Coripo’s Keynote in an online program I was taking part of, I was as hooked as my friends. We loved him and his simple, practical and effective ideas. So much so that we got in touch with him and Marlena, the authors of a series of books Eduprotocols and translated into an ebook to Portuguese. Now they have a podcast where they share their famous protocols. I can guarantee that your classes will never be the same after you use them!
Great to be back!
A quick aside note. So great to be back to Richmond Blog.
