Awesome Podcasts You Won't Want to Miss

A few summers ago, I started to really get into listening to audiobooks.  That eventually led me to listening to podcasts.  I have since added a growing number of podcasts to my podcast library, most of which are library, tech, or education related.

I have added all of these to the Grow Your PLN tab at the top of this blog, but wanted to share them in a blog post as well. 


This podcast is hosted by two librarians from Houston. They discuss books, literacy, EdTech and libraries.

This is a bi-monthly podcast sponsored by MASL and hosted by Missouri school librarians. Topics include popular trends in school libraries like genrefication, collaboration, and MakerSpaces.

This is a bi-weekly podcast for school librarians and educators sponsored by Metro National Public Schools Library Services.

Laura Sheneman hosts this weekly podcast where she interviews school librarians on hot topics in school libraries.

This weekly podcast is hosted by three middle school school library media specialists to share and advocate for school libraries.

This is my FAVORITE school library related podcast.  This was the podcast that got me hooked on podcasts.  I binge-listened to every episode last summer and have since made sure to catch all new episodes. Amy Hermon hosts these weekly podcasts and she has a variety of guests on her show to talk about all things library-related.  Bonus-if you email her, she will send you one of her cool podcast stickers and a sweet note.

From the Apple Podcast description:
"This season, inspired by the Urvban Library Council's Annual Forum theme, Innovations, focuses on the 2019 Top Innovator and Honorable Mention award winners that were selected based on inventiveness of their library program or service, outcomes achieved and the accessibility for other libraries to adopt the innovation in their library."

This podcast is all about books for tweens. New books are discussed and many times the author is interviewed by Corrina Allen.

Hosted by Matthew Winner, this podcast discusses issues in kidlit these days. So many great episodes-you will good hooked in fast!

This podcast is about cool tools and apps for the classroom (or school library).

This podcast, hosted by Jake Miller, discusses using EdTEch as a tool "to meet goals, address learning standards and solve problems in the classroom." Each week, a new guest shares different ways they use tech in the classroom.

This podcast is hosted by Chris Nesi who interviews and shares stories from educators about edtech, recommending tech tools, tips, and resources for integrating tech into the classroom (or library).

Kasey Bell hosts this weekly podcast about tech tips, lesson ideas, and more! 

This podcast is hosted by Dr. Greg Goins who interviews "the nations top educators, authors, and innovators in P-12 education with an emphasis on leadership development, scaling innovation and transforming our school systems."

Jennifer Gonzalez hosts this podcasts where she interviews "educators, students, administrators and parents about the psychological and social dynamics of school, trade secrets" and more!

As you can see, there are a great many podcasts available that relate to what we do in schools. Why not give one a try? I think you will find something that resonates with you.
