Radiolab - Recommended podcast for student engagement

By Future TalentEd

We recommend Radiolab as a podcast for student engagement - especially its kid-friendly version.

Radiolab’s podcast challenges preconceived notions about how the world works, breaking down scientific concepts to make them accessible.

Recent episodes discuss the concept of human challenge trials for vaccines (if someone asked you to get infected with the COVID-19 virus, deliberately, to
speed up the development of a vaccine, would you do it?) and the strange power
of lying to yourself.

There is also a kid-friendly version that covers topics like octopus heroics and why the speed of thought isn't as fast as we think!

If you have students or young people learning at home, this podcast makes for stimulating listening and some great conversation starters, either one-to-one or through group work.
