What is Teachers Talk Radio?

 

Teachers Talk Radio is an online community radio station for teachers and educators. It's the biggest audio platform for educators in the UK, with an expanding international listenership.

Teachers Talk Radio was founded in January 2021. Our first show was broadcast the next month. Since then, our host team has expanded to 36 volunteer teacher-hosts (April 2024).

 

The vast majority of our hosts are current classroom-based teachers or school-based leaders, providing intelligent education conversation from the front line. Our hosts broadcast from the UK and beyond - find out more about them here.

What makes Teachers Talk Radio unique?

Unlike your traditional education podcast, Teachers Talk Radio shows are all LIVE. This means that listeners can text or call in to our shows to interact directly with our hosts. We have shows every day on our schedule, so there's always a chance to have your voice heard.

 

We are proud of the diversity of thought within our Teachers Talk Radio team - no two hosts are alike! Our shows contain a mix of advice, guidance, information, debate, entertainment.

 

What if I miss a live show?

 

All our shows are published as podcasts. Use the listen back page to catch up with our hosts on demand. In November 2023 Teachers Talk Radio achieved the milestone of one million downloads - something we certainly couldn't have done without our dedicated listeners.

In short, Teachers Talk Radio is more than just a radio station. We're a vibrant community, comprising not only our hosts and contributors but our listeners and supporters on Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
