Every day, millions of listeners listen to podcasts to teach themselves about the humanities, sciences, and other academic topics, selecting the programs and hosts that suit their learning styles. From professionals in studios to hobbyists in bedroom closets; from tenured academics to energetic young enthusiasts, producers of educational audio are a diverse set. But they share a common goal – distilling complex information into lectures, conversations and interviews that are free and accessible to everyone in the world.
