It’s About Time put together a list of 20 of their favorite STEM podcasts out there right now!

Educators craving that end-of-Summer boost to get them back in the zone for the Fall don’t have to look far. While it goes without saying that, over the Summer break, teachers enjoy being inspired by the written word from their ever-growing book lists, there is also incredible information and inspiration to be found through podcasts.

While there have been quite a few great listicles on general education podcasts (like 50 Educational Podcasts You Should Check Out by our friends over at Getting Smart), we’ve compiled twenty of the most informative, thought-provoking, humorous, and mind-blowing podcasts delivering the latest in science, technology, engineering, and math that educators can listen to anywhere (as long as your phone or tablet battery is charged!).

For news, new ideas and a ton of inspiration, check out our top 20 STEM podcasts to get you pumped and prepared for the new school year…

1. StarTalk Radio. StarTalk Radio is Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s award winning talk show discussing cosmological wonders, cutting edge science technology, and hypothetical feats of imagination. Tyson (known the world over for his easy-going nature, humorous delivery and ability to spark the imagination of even the biggest skeptic) sets out to change how we see the universe and ourselves. StarTalk is a favorite in the science and education community. Listen via SoundCloud or iTunes, or visit the website http://www.startalkradio.net.
