8 Educational Podcasts Every Teen Should Listen To

I guess you know about podcasts?

Techopedia defines it as a type of digital media, usually audio, that is available in a series of episodes or parts and is streamed or downloaded by the end user over the Internet.

As of June 2022, there are over 2.4 million podcasts with over 66 million episodes between them. It is predicted that there will be around 424 million podcast listeners worldwide by the end of 2022.

One good thing about podcasts is that you can listen to them anywhere you are. Whether you are cooking, going on an errand, or just bored. Podcasts are also a productive way for teens to fight boredom. And, in this post I will be listing out 8 educational podcasts every teen should listen to. Highly recommended!

Let's go,

1) TED Talks Daily

What's writing about educational podcasts for teens without mentioning TED TALKS DAILY?

TED TALKS DAILY helps you change your perspectives, triggers your curiosity and you will always learn something new.

One of my hobbies is learning new things. Sounds funny to me sometimes, but it is what it is.

Whenever I listen to TED TALKS, I'm always hooked. You should listen to it too. You will always get value from the speakers. Listen to the Podcast here.

2) How I built this!

As a teen or a young adult, if you are interested in entrepreneurship... this is a podcast to listen to.

How I built this! is a podcast that features the founders of some of the most successful companies and businesses.

You can learn from their stories, how they started, the mistakes they made, and how they overcame some challenges. This is one of the best avenues to pick their brains and draw inspiration. You can listen to the podcast here.

3) The Unstoppable Teen
