5 Educational Podcasts that will change how you think!
All those busy people who are struggling to juggle multiple things in their day to day routine and yet want to learn something interesting without spending much of their time, podcasts are a magical solution. Podcasts are a great way to get information when you’re driving in your car, or travelling in a metro or doing other routine things as they don’t force you to find more time in your day and promote multi-tasking.
Here’s the list of the 5 educational podcasts that are worth listening to :
1. History of the World in 100 Objects :
Just as the podcast title says, there are a total of 100 episodes, and each episode covers an object and how it affected history. The best thing is that the objects chosen are such that anyone and everyone would be interested to know about it’s history.
In this podcast, the hosts talk about all those various stuff which we should know about but have no time to Google about them. Though the information may not be much of use in daily life but it will surely enrich you with knowledge as well as help you initiate interesting conversations. For example, they talk about things such as how mosquitoes survive and how landfills work. The great thing is that the topics change from one podcast to the next, so if you do not find one interesting, then you may skip it and try another.
3. SciFri :
This podcast is released on Fridays and it covers a vast number of topics from the various branches of science, hence the name is SciFri. It has educational stories and activities that you can try. There are occasionally guests on the show such as Elon, Sylvia Earle.
4. Question of the day :
It is a show for listeners who are short on time and long on curiosity. It is a fast-paced conversation between author and entrepreneur James Altucher and Freakonomics Co-author Stephen Dubner: two smart, unconventional thinkers who have been talking together for years on various issues. For every podcast there is a Question of the Day on which they will ponder and make wonderful and sharp observations which will leave you addicted. The answers await you every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

It is a place for all the poetry lovers. This podcast series is a storehouse of some of the greatest poetry in English. The catalogue currently includes over 300 poems by over 80 poets. You can browse through themes or poets to find the one that interests you.
