Do you listen to podcasts with your kids?

When we drive somewhere as a family, we usually let 7-year-old Clara pick the soundtrack. It’s mostly to keep her happy during long rides. On the whole, Ian and I can tolerate the kiddie music. But lately the seemingly endless stream of kids bop is driving us a bit wild, so on a recent drive I suggested we listen to a podcast.

I heard that NPR had a science and natural history podcast for kids called Wow in the World, and downloaded a few episodes. It’s the perfect blend of humour and insight, and Clara loves it. Ian and I enjoy it too, so it keeps us all pretty happy.

Now I’m on the hunt for more kid-friendly podcasts. Any recommendations?
