Who doesn’t love an origin story? If you like to be inspired by how your esteemed edtech companies started, this one’s for you. EdTech Stories is a narrative storytelling podcast that profiles the origins behind the technology transforming the way we teach and learn. Rich Colosi covers a different tech company every week, interviewing founders and thought-leaders. The first episode on Wakelet is a remarkable pilot breaking down how hard work, perseverance, and a little bit of luck have given birth to a million-user strong edtech product.
House of #EdTech
House of #EdTech is packed with tips, tools, and strategies for integrating technology into the classroom. It’s an #edtech podcast that explores how technology is changing the way teachers teach and the impact that technology is having in education. 165 episodes deep, Chris Nesi’s show offers ideas and insights for edtech across various subject areas and year levels. Check out the episode on teaching virtually, which is very apt in the present times.
This one’s a brand new podcast and we’re loving it! Edsource is a non-profit journalism website reporting on key education issues in California and beyond. Carl Cohn has worked in the education sector for over 50 years as a teacher, counselor, district superintendent, state board of education member, and the head of the New State Educational Agency. He talks to leading superintendents about the biggest challenges the sector is facing today, and how to overcome them. We especially like this episode where Carl sits down with Superintendent Christi Barrett of Hemet Unified on plans to reopen schools - how, when, and in what form?

Freedom Writers Podcast
We find this podcast to be so inspiring, talking about urban education and everyday teaching experiences. It transcends education and embraces issues that are relevant in today’s world. What we find unique in this education podcast is how it sheds light on stories of the past and how they enable technology to be applied in today’s classroom environment.
Edtech and food combined? Yes, such podcast exists! EdTech Bites is all things EdTech and Food. Gabriel Carrillo interviews teachers, leaders, and innovators to discuss the latest trends in educational technology. What makes it interesting is that the conversations happen over a meal together. Talking about breaking bread with great people! We especially like the episode with Cari Orts where they talk about a key element missing in distance learning...FUN.
