Podcasts are a great way to learn new things, especially if you’re a busy parent who’s always on the go. There are podcasts covering just about every topic there is, including parenting.

Here’s a roundup of 7 of the best parenting podcasts out there!

Psst… Here are the best books to read to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month!

Raising Good Humans

Raising Good Humans is hosted by Dr. Aliza Pressman, a developmental psychologist and co-founding director of the Mount Sinai Parenting Center.

Her goal on this podcast is to bring parents the latest research on child development so they can make the best choices for their families without having to sift through journals of medical jargon. Raising Good Humans presents effective approaches to parenting in a judgment-free way. 

Life Kit: Parenting

If you’re an NPR listener who’s also looking for a parenting podcast, they have the choice for you. Life Kit talks to experts to help get you advice on all sorts of topics, and they have a category of episodes specifically focused on parenting.

They tend to be shorter than some other podcasts (most episodes range from 10 minutes to half an hour in length), so you can get the information you’re looking for without fluff.

Life Kit’s parenting episodes cover topics like tips for becoming a step-parent and how to resolve conflicts between siblings and what’s happening on the news. 

Talking to Teens

Raising teenagers is no small feat, but parent-teen researcher Andy Earle is here to help.

Every episode, Earle speaks with top authors and experts to give parents advice on how to have effective conversations with their teenagers. Because Earle is a research psychologist, everything on the podcast is verified and backed by science. 

Respectful Parenting: Janet Lansbury Unruffled

Janet Lansbury has worked with children and parents for over 25 years, and now she’s sharing what she’s learned with listeners on Unruffled.

Every episode of this podcast looks at a parenting issue through the lens of Lansbury’s respectful parenting approach, which is built on the idea that children deserve the same respect as adults. Join Lansbury every week as she explores a new topic. 

The Mom Hour

The Mom Hour podcast features Meagan Francis and Sarah Powers having weekly conversations with each other about motherhood. Francis and Powers have eight children between the two of them, so they’ve both had a fair share of experience.

But at the same time, they don’t market themselves as experts, just “moms who’ve been there.” It’s a great choice if you’re looking for authentic conversations about parenting. 

Your Parenting Mojo

This podcast presents research-based ideas that will help parents support their children throughout their lives. There are almost 200 episodes of Your Parenting Mojo and a new one comes out every week. Host Jen Lumanlan is working on a Masters in Psychology with a focus on child development.

Join her each week as she researches topics of interest and helps parents find tools for their children to thrive. This podcast is a good choice if you’re fascinated by the science behind parenting, but don’t have time to read through scientific journals and research.

Good Inside

Looking for a parenting podcast but don’t want to devote a full hour to listening each week? Check out Good Inside with Dr. Becky Kennedy.

Every new episode clocks in at under 45 minutes long and provides advice and insight on mindfulness, emotional regulation, family systems and more that Dr. Kennedy has learned through years of work as a clinical psychologist and mother of three.
