48 Current Nonprofit Podcasts in 2021

Digital Media

Podcasting is an incredible medium that was catapulted into mainstream audiences with the success of Spotify buying top podcasts and growth of podcast companies like Gimlet Media. This renaissance of the medium presents a fantastic opportunity for deeper content to be created and consumed by people interested in the nonprofit world.

While it is easy to create a podcast, the difficulty comes with the ongoing work needed to maintain a podcast month after month. This leads to a rather large podcast graveyard in the iTunes library making it very hard to find current podcasts.

This is a curated podcast list is composed of a variety of podcasts concerning technology, management in the nonprofit sector, grant writing, fundraising, and many cause issues ranging from mitigation of climate change to human rights. These podcasts are related through their focus on social change and are still active as of Q1 2021. We hope that you enjoy this summary of great nonprofit podcasts and please let us know if we left some off!
