When I first heard about podcasts, I wasn’t impressed and didn’t think it would last; boy was I wrong. According to Podcast Insights, 51% of the United States population has listened to a podcast—49% listen to podcasts at home, and 22% listen to them in the car.
For me, it would be closer to 90% at home. I find that listening to podcasts while I’m tidying up, “yardening,” or cleaning our rat cage (this takes a while) drastically helps to alleviate the boredom and redeem the time.
As podcasts become even more popular and widespread, it gets harder to find the right podcast to listen to.
We previously published a blog post that lists 15 favorite podcasts from our readers. In this blog post, we are compiling a list of homeschool podcasts. If we are missing a podcast, please post a link in the comments section so that we can keep this blog post up-to-date.

Podcasts are becoming more and more popular. And homeschooling podcasts are a godsend. Thanks for this compilation. I will listen and advise my friends, so that later there would be something to discuss at the weekend.
This is a long list. Never knew there were so many homeschool podcasts. I am very surprised that “Wild and Free” is missing from this list. It’s beautiful and my go-to homeschooling podcast. And I’m also surprised that there’s only 1 unschooling podcast on this list.
