Audiopi is a dedicated audio service for the educational marketplace. We create podcast for GCSE and A Level students which are directly aligned to the curriculum.


Education should be a joy for all. In every culture up until the 21st Century, the aural tradition has been the most powerful source of passing knowledge from generation to generation. This tradition is the inspiration at Audiopi - to capture and enable that story telling spirit that informs, teaches and entertains simultaneously.

This tradition has been slowly eroded but it shouldn't have. It has stood the test of time and proves, along with many current studies, that listening and listening well, is a powerful tool for learning. 

Audiopi’s podcasts and our platform reflect this. We want their students to pass their exams and pass them well, but as importantly, they want them to be inspired by the subjects they are learning. To achieve this Audiopi are creating exceptional podcasts that teach and fuel the imagination in equal measure and are building a platform so that educators and students can create, share, collaborate and learn from one another.
