Every day, millions of listeners listen to podcasts and radio programs to teach themselves about the humanities, sciences, and other academic topics, selecting the programs and hosts that suit their learning styles. From tenured academics in university studios to young hobbyists in bedroom closets, producers of educational audio are a diverse set. But they share a common goal—to distill complex information into lectures, conversations, and interviews that are free and accessible to everyone in the world.
Sound Education is a 4-day event in Boston for educational and academic podcasters and radio hosts, and their listeners. It is hosted by Ministry of Ideas, a podcast based at Harvard Divinity School. Information about the first Sound Education conference, in 2018, can be found here.
