Educational podcasts are a fantastic way to get PD in your pocket. What are educators are loving to listen to right now? Here are 10 podcasts to check out.

There are hundreds of educational podcasts available to teachers on almost every subject you can think of. We see new podcasts launching all the time and some we have been hearing about for years but haven’t had the chance to check out.

What are the podcasts that other educators love to listen to? And how can we find one or two (or 3 or 4) that will become our go-to favorites?

During a Valentine’s day themed #DitchBook Twitter chat (Thursdays at 7 p.m. PST / 8 p.m. MST / 9 p.m. CST / 10 p.m. EST), hosted by Craig Klement, we discussed these questions and more. The conversation included sharing websites, books, and Twitter chats, along with the podcasts that we LOVE.

Below you will find 10 podcasts recommended by educators for educators. Be sure to check out this Wakelet to see the whole discussion along with this collection of favorite websites, books, Twitter chats and even MORE podcast recommendations from the #Ditchbook community.
