List Rules Podcasts with episodes that don't average longer than 10 minutes, with the majority of episodes coming in under 10 minutes.

There are only so many minutes in the day, and there are a lot more podcasts than there are available minutes. This list of the best short podcasts with episodes that average under ten minutes can help you get ahead of news, science, and even mindfulness, in super short episodes.

Although many podcasts might have "five minutes" in their title, they rarely live up to that limit, stretching themselves well over ten minutes and often close to thirty. History In Five from Simon & Schuster takes it's title seriously and delivers quick facts about big historical moments in episodes that average 1-5 minutes long. The 60-Second podcast series from Scientific American serves an even tighter stopwatch but manages to share information on the brain, health, science, space, and tech in no longer than a minute each. And it's not just tidbits of information or opinion you can hear in under ten minutes. Short story podcasts weave quick worlds, with the scripted mystery adventure podcast Six Minutes regularly coming in under the time limit in its title.

Even though once in a while these podcasts have an episode that slips a touch over the ten-minute limit, the majority of their episodes come in comfortably under ten minutes. Which of these short podcasts are the best? If we forgot a great short podcast, be sure to add it to the list!
