Don’t let your brain go on pilot mode this summer. With all your glorious free time, try listening to a podcast that will sharpen your brain and engage your curiosity rather than indulging in another Netflix binge or scrolling through the black-hole that is internet (We’ve all been there).
Podcasts are incredibly portable (dare we say, even more portable than books) and usually 100% free. Just download or stream one that interests you, and listen while you work out, walk the dog, do chores, or road-trip to that family vacation you’ve totally been looking forward to.
We’ve curated over 30 podcasts that are educational but still engaging and accessible. Topics range from science and design, to linguistic oddities, to economics and politics. We’ve listed our favorite in each category first, but they’re all high-quality and interesting.
Now, grab those earbuds and start sampling:
