5 Podcasts Just for Kids


My kids and I are HUGE fans of podcasts.  With such a diverse range of topics available (with my personal favorite one The Dais Podcast by Rachel Hollis), podcasts allow me to expose my family to a wide variety of age-appropriate topics while doing chores or riding in the car!  I’ve listed the top 5 that we listen to but there are so many options available on streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

Brains On! Science podcast

Do you ever wonder about your circadian rhythm?  Or why your body is susceptible to motion sickness?  Brains On!® is a science podcast for curious kids and adults from American Public Media. Kid scientists and reporters from public radio co-host Brains On each week and ask tons of questions about science.  


April Eight

April Eight is a delightful original fairytale podcast that the whole family will love.  From the creators of April Eight: “…on the April Eight Songs & Stories Podcast, unexpected heroes take the day in pursuit of life’s simple truth: Love conquers all and will always find a way.”  


Peace Out Podcast

We love Peace Out Podcast at home and in the car.  (If you’ve been in a car with screaming/fighting kids then you’ll know why and if you’re a parent then you HAVE been there).  Peace Out Podcast has short stories that help children calm down and relax by teaching them visualization and breathing techniques.  This podcast is also very effective for bedtime and also helps teach children (and adults) mindfulness. 


Short & Curly 

Short & Curly is ideal for kiddos aged 7-12 as it’s fast paced podcast that asks thought provoking questions about ethics.  It’s a great podcast to listen to while making dinner and discuss over your meal!
