We've listened to a bunch of different podcasts for kids - and hands down the past and the curious is the clear fav. Mom & Dad love it too. Wish it published with more frequency, but it's worth the wait every month. Makes road trips much much easier.

Awesome 👏 😁😜so fun I’m 11 and I love listening every night before I go to bed. I really enjoy science and history. so, brains on and the past and the curious check all the boxes! One more thing... PLEASE MORE EPISODES!! I have listened to every episode at least once! This is such a great podcast, I want more!!! But, yes. I love it!!😍😊😊😁👍🏻

Doesn’t talk down to kids!

by Chamilto on
Rating: ★★★★★

We love this podcast so much more than supposed ‘kid-friendly’ ones like Brains On that rely on insultingly exaggerated characters and diction to get kids interested. The Past and the Curious wisely knows that straight-talking, well-told stories are the essence of history and are plenty engaging with charmingly low-fi accompaniment. (I mean, really charming - Heinie sponsor song, quiz time, etc.) This is a podcast that doesn’t take down to kids - well done!

Fun and informative

Rating: ★★★★★

The Past and The Curious is a wonderful combination of fun, humor, and education. Kids will be sure to fall in love with history (if they aren’t already) after listening to this show, and parents will be excited to share new episodes. It’s public radio quality with the playfulness of a podcast. My family can’t wait for more.

Clearly smart and great with kids

Mick makes history fun and even grown-ups can learn something. He’s not afraid to take chances with fun formatting to keep things interesting. Great show.

Pure Delight for Kids and Grown-Ups

by Louisville Listener on
Rating: ★★★★★

Great stories from history. Compelling presentation, especially the use of music. (Love "It's Quiz Time! It's Quiz Time!") The people behind this sound like they're having fun and I had fun listening to them, so much fun in fact, that I forgot I was listening to something ostensibly for kids. Terrific podcast. Can't wait to hear more.

love to listen!

Top Quality Podcast!

by Furious__George on
Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast is completely enjoyable for people all of ages with a love of learning! The format is perfect for breaking each episode up into smaller sessions, or listening to the whole episode in one sitting. Each of the 2 stories in every episode are well written, show extensive research, and the narrators are fun & engaging. The quiz section serves as a great way to divide the stories, while adding additional fun facts related to the themed subject matter. The music & songs are also impeccably currated and performed, while adding immensely to the overall enjoyment. Looking forward to listening for a long time to come!

Finally a childrens history podcast!

My children and I love podcasts and have been using them to supplement our homeschool curriculum. There are many great science and literary podcasts for kids, but this is the first I've found for history and it's great fun.

Informative and fun!

Listened with my daughter on the way to school. We really enjoyed it. She said her teacher was impressed when she told her version of the P.T. Barnum Story. She added new words to her 4th grade Vocabulary too!
