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.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Join 32,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord
