6 FFA podcasts that every member & advisor should check out

Published:

Today’s FFA members can have any information they need at the touch of a button. However, there is also something to be said about listening to new information instead of having to read about it. Podcasts are the most popular platform when people want to discover new topics or dive deeper into their passions — for example, listening to the National FFA Organization’s official podcast while on a trip or while doing daily chores.  

Not only are podcasts the perfect way to do mindless activities, but they also allow for a break in screen time for us. As FFA members and advisors begin to travel more, FFA podcasts are the perfect way to pass the time. Throughout this year podcasts have been a great way to reach members virtually and explore the agriculture industry from across the country. From North Carolina to New Mexico, FFA members are able to expand their connection to FFA through podcasts.

Check out a few of our favorite FFA podcasts below (click each title to got to the podcast main page):
