Whether you're looking for something fun to do with the whole family or relaxing alone, it's always a good idea to try out some new Spanish and Latinx podcasts.

Why podcasts? For starters, they are easy to access and can be listened to anytime and anywhere. Parents are busy, and so are kids. Try downloading a podcast and listening on your way to school or soccer practice. What's more, you can opt for a podcast as a pre-bedtime routine instead of the usual books. There's no setup and no cleanup — you can dive in whenever you have a few minutes to spare.

Whatever genre your prefer, podcasts are a great and relaxing way to learn something new, like the Spanish language or more about Latinx culture. Start with these 15 podcasts and you'll pick up a little Spanish, hear important stories and news about the Latinx community, or even enrich your bilingual kids' vocabularies.
