Hey friends! I’m back! And with a list of podcasts you should totally check out.
Some of you know this, but I have a few siblings who are 12, 14, and 16 years younger than I am. I’m teaching one of them to read and I read aloud to all of them as much as possible. I guess I could consider myself an educator. And because of this, I’m a complete out-of-the-box single who likes podcast geared toward parents? Yeah. But who’s judging?
(Well, maybe the world. But why should I care? :D)
If you’re interested in the art and science of reading aloud to children, check out Read Aloud Revival. And, yes, I mean actual science. Reading aloud, picking good books for kids, and guiding them through the reading life is so important to raising healthy, intelligent kiddos.
What do we have here? Another podcast meant for a parent audience? Why, yes.
The Plugged In Show is genuinely amazing stuff. They talk about movies, stories, genre, video games, the latest trends in entertainment, and how to be conscientious about our media intake. Plus it’s just plain fun to listen to.
Oh, you guessed it! Stories are Soul Food is indeed another podcast directed toward parents. However, when I heard that it’s hosted by the one and only N. D. Wilson, I was all in. GUYS. It’s a PODCAST by N.D. WILSON.
This podcast is a Canonball Books production, and even though I don’t agree with everything Douglas Wilson and Canonball stand for, I think their stance on education is spot-on. N.D. Wilson has so. many. crazy. insights into education and stories. I’ve been simply gobbling up every episode. It stokes every facet of my personality, from book-lover to writer to educator.
And lastly, this for you writers out there who are tired of my rambling about my passion for education. Kate and Abbie are a couple of incredible human beings. You can’t help but be inspired listening to them. They talk about writing like no one else I’ve come across. Prepare to have some writing myths you believe be debunked.
Have joy (and listen to podcasts)!
