Review of Brains On!

by Jake Age 8 on Jun 22, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Dear parents, I think you should listen to Brains On! with your kids because they try to teach you things in a funny and silly way. Another reason I think you will like Brains On! is because they call on scientists to help them find out the answer. They also let kids call in to give mystery sounds and to answer them. They also let kids have a chance to be a co-host, be in the show, and tell them how they got interested in that subject.

My two daughters (12 & 8) and I LOVE listening to this podcast. The Host is informative, fun, nurturing of curiosity, and all around amazing for kids (& adults). They interview experts in the field they are reporting on who never talk down to children and always encourage more questions & exploration.Thank You Brains On you are doing a wonderful job!

My 4-yr old son loves this podcast and will ask listen to it over watching TV when we are driving in the van. My husband and I also enjoy listening. My son loves the mystery sound segment and I can always get him to talk about it, which is nice since he often isn't very talkative.Keep up the good work!

My children are four and two and we listen to this on the way to work and school in the morning. They both love it! I also use it in my classroom as a grade school science teacher. It is engaging and informative.

Our family absolutely loves Brains On! We began listening to Brains On while traveling home from a family reunion, and once we got home, our children didn't want to get out of the car because they were so involved with the episode they were listening to. That was about 9 months ago and we have listened to almost every episode twice. My children prefer it to the radio which I can't complain! The only downfall to this podcast is, WE WANT MORE EPISODES!!!!!

Interesting & Energetic for kids & adults

A friend recommended this as a fun podcast to listen to on one of our many days we spend so much time in the car. The very first episode we listened to was exactly what I was looking for! It sparked curiousity and our next science unit in our homeschool will be all about Ants, just because of this podcast. My 5 year old was bursting full of facts about ants to anyone who would listen, mostly her 2 year old brother. My 8 year old stayed absorbed in the entire episode. I really recommend this podcast!

Great for kids and parents!

We first heard about Brains On when Larry Mantle talked about it on KPCC. We have since moved to Chennai, India and we love listening in the car. The show covers all sorts of interesting topics and presents the information in a way that is so accessible to kids. Our favorite part of each episode is the Mystery Sound. We love taking guesses together and then finding out what the sound really is. Please keep up the good work.

Brains On is an awesome show that teaches about fun parts of science! I'm a scientist and I listened to Brains On and I learned a lot! I haven't played this for the kids in my life yet but I definitely will. In fact I just thought of a few I should recommend this too. :) I highly recommend you check it out!

My 5 year old loves this podcast and so does the rest of the family. His favorite part is the "mystery sound" in every episode. I like the recent episodes on National Parks. And the podcast is a perfect bedtime story when I'm too sleepy to read another book. Thanks Brains On!

Love. Kid attractant with solid science.

3 and 5 year old love it. Often requested, and makes road trips fantastic. Thank you, thank you for producing this. It saves me from lots of head aches, and creates lots of questions... Which are often answered in another podcast :)

Good for adults, too!

I have two college degrees and still learn something new from every episode. Oftentimes, a question will be asked on a subject that I THOUGHT I already knew everything about. Each time, however, the Brains On! investigation uncovers pieces of the picture that I didn't know were even there. I end up wondering about new questions as a result.
