There are so many great educators out there sharing the awesome work they are doing in physical education via Podcasts/Voxcasts. WE are highlighting a few of our favorites for you to check out!

PHSYEDagogy Podcast

This is a collaborative physical education project by Matt Pomeroy, Naomi Hartl, Collin Brooks, and Jonathan Jones. We are looking to showcase some of the best physical education teaching practices, lesson ideas, and epic events that #physed and #pegeeks across the world are doing at their schools. We will be interviewing teachers and they will be sharing the story about their lesson. They will also share materials so you can implement the idea into your physical education classroom. Subscribe to the podcast on i-tunes or Podomatic.

The #PhysEd Podcast

In 2013, Nathan Horne and Joey Feith got together to shoot the breeze about #physed, health, and technology. The result was The #PhysEd Podcast. Subscribe to hear why thousands of teachers enjoy listening in on Nathan and Joey's conversation.


The #PEGeek Podcast

The PE Geek Podcast is the number one destination for anyone interested in utilizing technologies within their Physical Education classroom. The Podcast explores current tools, trends and classroom proven ideas.


PEPRN Podcast

This podcast is an audio version of the PEPRN blog. The PEPRN blog's aim is to bring together physical education teachers, coaches, physical activity leaders, volunteers and university practitioners from around the world to talk about practice, young peoples’ experiences of physical activity, and research.



Listen to this podcast about #PhysEd teachers having conversations about all things PE with educators from around the world. The best part about this podcast is that they used the voxer app to interview their guest speakers!
