Best Podcasts: Saturday Inspiration for Teachers

Inside: My favourite teacher podcasts.

Hello! This week I thought I’d share what I think are the best podcasts!

I’ve been an avid podcast listener for a couple of years now and I definitely have my favourites: some teaching related and some not (’cause it’s important to shake it up a bit, right?).

 

My first pick is Angela Watson’s Truth for Teachers podcast.  I just started listening to this one a few weeks ago and I’m very impressed with her honesty and thoughtfulness.

Every Sunday Angela releases a new episode “to speak life, encouragement, and truth into the minds and hearts of educators”.

I’m always inspired by Angela and I think you will be, too!

I’ve also really been enjoying The Cult of Pedagogy by Jennifer Gonzale.

Jennifer shares a number of diverse topics and interviews “educators, students, administrators and parents about the psychological and social dynamics of school, trade secrets, and other juicy things you’ll never learn in a textbook. Other episodes feature me on my own, offering advice on ways to make your teaching more effective and more fun.”

All her episodes are reflective and thought-provoking. Be sure to check her out!

My next favourite podcast is a very new one. I believe her 13th episode came out earlier this week. This one is called Character Speaks and is hosted by my friend Barbara Gruener, a recently retired school counselor in Texas.

Barbara and her guests focus their discussions around kindness, compassion and character development.

Each episode is relatively short but after every listen I always come away feeling inspired.

Kindsight 101 is another podcast you don’t want to miss. This one is by Morgane Michael, who is also the creator of the Small Act, Big Impact 21-Day Challenge.

Her podcast focuses on kindness, empathy and compassion. Morgane interviews a variety of world renowned educational leaders: Her podcast is full of real-life stories and practical advice.

The next podcasts are not about teaching, but I love them SO much I want to share them anyway.

Love to Sew by Helen and Caroline is so much fun that I can’t wait to listen to it each week. These Vancouver ladies are giggly and energetic and share a TON of fabulous sewing advice. I’ve been sewing since I was a teenager but I always learn something new and wonderful when I listen to them.

And finally, The Honest Designers Show by Design Cuts.

Because I like to create and sell clip art,  I also love to listen to Ian, Lisa, Tom and Dustin talk about all aspects of the creative online business world. This show gives you “a transparent look into life as a modern designer.” 

Along with all the laughs, there’s also tons of good thoughtful advice.
