With what seems a never-ending supply of podcasts ranging from meditation, to sports, to investing and lifestyle, how can someone possibly decide where to begin to look? Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a compilation of two lists of the top podcasts that address hearing health and of the top accessible podcasts. In case you’re wondering, accessible podcasts are ones that offer transcriptions of each episode so you don’t have to rely on listening, you can simply pull up the transcription and read the episode as you would a short story. Kick back, relax, and let’s get into it!

Podcasts Addressing Hearing Health-

Hearing Health Today:

In June 2020, implantable hearing instrument company Cochlear Limited recently brought a podcast to streaming services called Hearing Health Today. Hearing Health Today brings industry professionals and individuals who live with hearing loss to discuss important topics ranging from the rise of telemedicine, to how to combat continual hearing degeneration, to a glimpse into the life of a child growing up with limited hearing. Although the intended audience is hearing health professionals, it engages those interested in, and impacted by, the industry all the same. Interested in exploring Hearing Health Today?

Accessible Podcasts That Offer Transcripts-

Podcasts are a great way to explore different topics in a succinct hour-long-or-so episode, but unfortunately, many podcasts alienate the population that is hard of hearing and deaf. Although there aren’t yet regulations on making podcasts accessible, many podcast producers are taking it into their own hands to address the accessibility gap. All of the below podcasts offer transcriptions of their episodes for you to read through at your leisure.

Move Your DNA:

Move Your DNA is a podcast hosted by the brand Nutritious Movement. Throughout the Move Your DNA podcast series, you have the chance to discover a variety of ways to incorporate movement into your daily lives, whether that means picking up a new hobby such as gardening, learning a new breathing technique to improve sleep, or trying new movement ideas to improve joint mobility. Interested in exploring Move Your DNA?

This American Life:

Typically ranking in the top five podcasts on Apple Podcasts with over 700 episodes to support its success, This American Life has been appealing to the podcast and news radio community since 1995. Described as “little movies for radio”, This American Life hosts each episode surrounded by big ideas, interesting people, big feelings, and plot twists to tell the stories of, well, American life. Perhaps the most interesting piece of this podcast is how it is broken into a prologue with an accompanying 3-4 Acts.
