5 Podcasts You Should Be Listening to as a Student - 3 min read

Today is International Podcast Day, the day we celebrate the power of podcasts! The purpose of International Podcast Day is to bring more visibility to podcasting and to promote podcasting worldwide.

International Podcast Day was created back in the summer of 2013 by Steve Lee (founder of Modern Life Network). Steve heard a radio announcement for National Senior Citizens’ Day, but he couldn’t help but wonder why no day of celebration for podcasting existed. On that note he said to himself: “Let’s create a Podcast Day!”.

At Lix, we have gathered five podcast channels which are the perfect match for any students – no matter what major you’re studying. There are several cool things about listening to podcasts; location doesn’t matter, you can do other stuff meanwhile, and it can easily fit in with your normal schedule! So let’s dive into the 5 channels that made it on to our list.
