This wonderful podcast has brought a whole new dimension to our car rides. Not only do we get the pleasure of listening, but it always sparks fun and interesting conversations as well.

My second-grader loves listening to this podcast, and her fifth-grade brother enjoys it well enough that for 20 minutes or so they can agree on something. I find it completely fascinating. Stuff is explained clearly and age-appropriately, it's well edited, everything. Worth your time.

Vermont Public Radio's podcast for curious kids is great because I love hearing kids ask their questions. My favorite episode is the popcorn one. I like learning new stuff every day.

I thought the podcast was good. I thought that it gave a good explanation for why people like the foods that they do. I learned a lot about it and I love how much information it gave.

Thanks for creating a community of curious and scientifically minded children. Our children benefit from knowing their questions and interests are shared by other children around the globe. Great show.

Helpful and fun for school.

We homechool our kids and this is one of our favorite breakfast science resources. It's a great way to start a school day and jumpstart the kids curiosity.

There's a number of science podcast for kids out there, but not all of them find a balance between being being able to hold child's attention, being informative, and not patronizing. But Why accomplishes all of these expertly!

I love this podcast. I found this to be a must-have companion on many road trips with my boys, 9 and 6. I love the calming and reassuring voice of the host and high-quality experts on the show. I highly recommend this podcast! The only thing I would suggest is to not make it a hard requirement to send it a voice recording of a question.

Great podcast to enjoy as a family

My five year old says "I love listening and learning about lots of different things. I was born in Maine, so my favorite episode has been about the tide pool on the coast of Maine."

The tone of this podcast is so perfect. It takes kids' questions seriously and gives them answers they can understand. I really appreciate having it has a resource for my curious son.

Super show

Great show! Super conversation starter and provides a platform for teaching kids how to listen. We are using this as an old fashioned radio hour style pre-bedtime family routine to assist in unwinding. Kids can't wait to hear more!

Love it!

My kids LOVE this podcast. I love listening to it as well. My kids actually ask how many more days until the next episode airs.

I downloaded a bunch of episodes for an extra long car ride I took with my twin 8-year olds and six year old. It captured their attention for a few hours, sparked conversation, and they even learned a bunch along the way! I highly recommend this gem.

Great Podcast!

Looking for non-video entertainment for my kids on long road trips, I downloaded this on a whim. What a treat! A great, engaging podcast that provides interesting information for kids and adults. I was surprised about how much I learned! The best part about the pod is that it doesn't condescend to children and explains things to them in a straightforward and engaging manner. Tough questions are not avoided and things aren't "dumbed down." Love it and will continue listening.

Excellent podcast, thank you VPR. My four year old really enjoyed these and I know that we will be able to listen again to the same episodes as he gets older and he will learn more and more.

Thank you so much for this episode. This is such an important issue and a hard one to explain to small children without taking away their precious innocence. I also learned a lot. Thank you for helping to teach to respect diversity.

Vermont Public Radio has done a great job designing a podcast for younger audiences. Our seven year old is already hooked!

A kids podcast that adults can enjoy, too!

Finally, a podcast for kids that’s educational and interesting and fun for kids, but won’t make parents want to jump out the window of their moving vehicle! Vermont Public Radio host Jane Lindholm applies her mad interviewing skills to answer questions curious kids are always asking, like how bears sleep all winter, or why invented words? The answers are explored in a way kids can understand, without talking down to them. Can’t wait until my kids are old enough to enjoy this podcast, but until then I’ll be a faithful listener!

Great discussion starter!

Our family is really enjoying this podcast. We listen with our kids; it’s great to see them get slowly sucked in by the stories, sound effects, and clear explanations. The topics have instigated great conversations over dinner or in the car. If you have “curious kids” this is a must-listen podcast!
