We at NARIC are big fans of podcasts! We each have our favorites: shows about cooking, true crime mysteries, news and events, science, comedy, and more. We listen to them while working out, cooking, driving, and relaxing. These shows can be entertaining, engaging, and educational. We're always looking for a new podcast to add to our list, like the one below from the Southeast ADA Regional Center. We gathered a selection of podcasts produced by NIDILRR grantees, as well as podcasts that have highlighted NIDILRR-funded research, in our Spotlight blog.
