Podcasts are becoming more and more popular. There are so many amazing ones available for kids now. Today I am sharing my TOP podcasts for learning.

How & Why to Use Podcasts in Your Homeschool

We love listening to podcasts over meals, in the car, and during our morning time. They make a great substitute for times when my voice needs a break or when I need a break. And because there are so many podcasts to choose from we can almost always find one that corresponds with whatever topic we are currently learning about.

In case you are new to podcasts the easiest way to listen is to choose on of the following apps: RadioPublic, Pocket Casts, Castbox, Podbean, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, Laughable, TuneIn Radio, or Spotify.

We personally use Podcast Addict, each of us have the app on our phone. We will either listen individually with our headphones or we will use a bluetooth speaker to listen as a family.
