Remember the good old days when you wanted to learn about something and you actually had to go to the library and research it? You would spend hours sifting through magazines, books and video clips. These days, technology has boosted our ability to learn new things in a quicker and more efficient way. With Netflix, YouTube and podcasts, you can learn about pretty much anything, anytime and anywhere.

Podcasts are quickly rising to the top as the perfect entertainment option, not to mention it can be really educational. With thousands of options available to download, there’s something for everyone. But don’t worry: we’ve narrowed it down to the best of the best for you!

What is a Podcast?

Podcasts are short audio clips, usually between 20 minutes and an hour long. Many are intended to entertain but others are meant to educate the audience. Some are part of a series and require you to tune in weekly to catch all the adventures.

How to Listen to Podcasts

While podcasts may seem like new territory, it’s easy to get started listening to them. There are several apps that allow you to download podcasts for free. Most Apple devices come with the Podcast app already installed. If you are an Android user, you have several options in the Google Playstore:

  • Stitcher (This is our personal favorite and what our family uses)
  • RadioPublic
  • Spotify
  • CastBox
  • Tune In Radio

When Can I Use Podcasts?

  • In the car
  • While cleaning
  • On road trips
  • Waiting in lines, at appointments or at kids’ practices
  • While working out
  • As bedtime stories
  • During bath time
  • While having “quiet time” with kids
  • At work (when safe and acceptable)
  • While cooking dinner
