There is this podcast I was listening to, in which the speaker recounts an experience at college quite hilariously but also teaches a great lesson (the lesson of sharing and the joy it brings) at the end of it. If I were to describe the podcast in one word, what would it be?

Here's a link to it :-) https://themoth.org/storytellers/ashok-ramasubramanian

I wouldn't actually recommend using this word, but the first thing that came to my mind was "edutaining." It's related to the term "edutainment" that was formed as a blend of "education" and "entertainment." This term is not common, and it still sounds silly to me and probably lots of other people. Some people might also have a negative reaction to it as "not a real word" or "advertising/marketing"-type jargon.

Here's an example of a comment where somebody used the word edutaining with this meaning:

I Loved BLOOD DIAMOND. Great story, very 'edutaining' (you're entertained and you learn a little too!) —thetvaddict (http://www.thetvaddict.com/2007/02/07/live-blogging-lost-episode-7-season-3/)

I found this example via Wordnik; you can see some more examples there.
