How it all started

Our story began in 2006 with a bold dream and a rented studio. As a distance-learning entrepreneur, I saw technology as the key to democratizing learning. By using cutting-edge media, I sought to give the world’s best professors a platform to reach everyone, not only the privileged few.


Each day, thoughtful people worldwide use Learn25 to enjoy lectures once only heard in the world’s premier lecture halls. I invite you to scan our catalog of hundreds of audio and video programs on history, science, psychology, health, religion, and other engaging topics.


Professors that inspire

Knowledge is the flame that sparks human progress. The best teachers kindle that flame in each of us, opening our minds to new possibilities. Did you have a professor who inspired you? If so, you understand that nothing can replace great teaching.

Learn for a lifetime, 25 minutes a day

To flourish, your mind needs new inspiration each day. But modern life is busy—it seems like we’re always on the go. That’s why we produce lectures that fit conveniently into your schedule, letting you learn for a lifetime, 25 minutes a day. Turn your daily commute into a classroom with our treasure trove of talks. Enhance your workouts with courses on topics you love. You do you.

Courses are taught by some of the world’s most inspiring professors, subject matter experts chosen by Learn25 and customers like you.

As of August 2021, Learn25 has become a part of CuriosityStream, a cutting-edge online educational media platform. We will continue operating as we have in the past, and we thank you for your patience during our transition period. Additionally, we are pleased to continue providing our popular subscription services. Listen to the great mind of monk and spiritual master Thomas Merton with MertonTalks, a monthly audio subscription service. Nurture your spiritual life with our CatholicStream video streaming subscription.

Combining scholarship with lively instruction, our professors enlighten and entertain, engage and inform. Many of their courses include free study guides with outlines, suggested readings, and more. Each course is backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.


Enjoy a lifetime of learning, 25 minutes a day.

“I can listen in the car and re-listen over and over. Your presenters are excellent, and I thank you for affording me the opportunity to listen and, hopefully, to act upon the inspirations I receive.”
