Top definition
a small group of students who learn together (like peas in a pod), either for academic convenience or due to special circumstances (such pandemic, specialized programs, or homeschooling)

From Merriam-Webster blog:
The origin of pod, referring to a group of marine mammals, isn't known, but in the 20th century it was adopted to refer to small groups of students as well. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this usage has seen an uptick, as educators consider new models for educating students remotely or in small groups referred to as "pods."
Learning pods—also called "pandemic pods," micro-schools or nano-schools—are small groups of students (typically three to 10 children) who learn together outside the classroom but still in person. Some pods are hiring tutors to teach a child's school curriculum; some pods are sharing teaching duties among parents. Other families are opting out of their kids' schools entirely and treating a pod like a home-schooling co-op with an agreed-upon curriculum.

A Think Tank expression that originated during late night sex trysts by deviant Apple techies performing after hour linguistic exorcisms. Bored with routine and monitor over glaze, they reference any body part, abstract thought, sexual fantasy or unnatural impulse by adding the word pod to an existing noun or noun substantive.

e.g. anus = bung pod, ass = rimpod.

A twisted incessant masturbator = squeege pod or squeege rod (a technical reference to the size of the penis or strap-on of said masturbator).

An under aged male or female nanosphincter with deviant anal aspirations = rim podling or bung podling depending on usage and context.
Tbird: Rod, pod, schmod, this is all a buncha' booshit, yo!

Apox: Tell it to the editors at Urbandictionary dude.

3. People detached from reality
Quote from Seinfeld episode s02e10 "The Appartment":

JERRY: Let me explain something to you.. You see, you're not normal. You're a great guy, I love you, but you're a pod. I, on the other hand, am a human being. I sometimes feel awkward, uncomfortable, even inhibited in certain situations with the other human beings. You wouldn't understand.

KRAMER: Because I'm a pod?
