This paper presents a work in progress. Traditionally, uses of podcasts often involve capturing a face-to-face lecture. In this paper, we discuss using a curated list of podcasts to introduce a social justice educational perspective into history classrooms. Shutting down all other media channels but one, the podcast shines a bright light on the power of voices and stories. We can hear the stories of those who have and are experiencing history, tell their stories, engage in a dialogue about their stories, and uncover the voices of those whose story was never told.
