Love the idea of the podcast and topics are good but the sound makes it impossible to listen. The volume levels are so different between different speakers and music that we are continually adjusting volume. Please fix this - we would love to listen!
These folks actually know what they're talking about AND they know how to keep kids engaged. That's a rare combo. I'm only slightly embarrassed to say that I learn something from every episode, too.
so so so so goooooood
My family and I homeschool and this is a really fun way for us to get a science lesson in. Many a good schoolday has started with Tumble over breakfast. :)
We listen to Tumble nearly every time our children are in the car. Thank you for creating such fun, creative, and fascinating content for children.
Captivates both the 6 year old and the 3 year old I watch. Wonderful personalities exploring wonderful topics in a very kid friendly way!
Tumble does a great job of telling stories as a way of educating and getting kids excited. Always fun, never didactic. My 7-year-old loves it.
Tumble is such a great resource for kids that Lindsay and Marshall have put together! They are great storytellers and really brought the story of my research to life in episode 1. I enjoy listening to the podcast myself. I'm still a kid at heart, I guess :) I highly recommend this podcast.
We also listen to Brains On and But Why, but we have a long drive both ways each weekday, so we burn through a lot of podcasts with our 3 year old. We love the topics Tumble takes on, and Lindsey does a fabulous job interviewing scientists and describing what's going on. BUTâ¦ As much as we enjoy the podcast, I cringe every time Marshall says something super dumb and Lindsey laughs patiently, and especially every time Marshall says something discouraging (like the batteries episode, where he says, "it's more fun to complain", as a counterpoint to the amazing scientist being interviewed). For this reason, Tumble is my least favorite of the three science podcasts we've found. Please, Marshall, stop trying to be funny and PLEASE stop saying negative things about your awesome podcast! I don't actually want my child hearing that a role model thinks complaining about bad things is a potential option as opposed to striving to make them better.
Tumble is something my mom, sister and I listen to each day. We love to hear all the stories about science. Thank you, Tumble!!
I love this it is so fun and awesome I never wanted to learn more in my life ð
Me and my kids (ages 4, 6, and 8) love this podcast! We look forward to listening to it when we go for rides in the car and it always sparks a great discussion. Marshall and Lindsey have funny banter which instantly pulls the kids into it, and the music makes me smile every time. I wish there were more educational and kid-friendly podcasts like this out there. We've listened to all episodes and my kids are always asking me to check for new ones. :)
My 8 and 9 year old love this podcast! It is perfect for our drive to school, the episodes are about 10-15 minutes long- perfect for the attention spans of kids.
LOVE it!! Our whole family loves every episode of Tumble! The recent Ant one was great! Who knew there were so many ants in the world!! We all LOVE listening together and learning something new!! We usually listen to them more than once! Thank you TEAM Escamilla!
There are so few podcasts that I don't have to screen for my kids and this is one of them. Really well produced, entertaining and my kids are always excited to tell me all about it. In fact, I've started listening myself!
My two-year-old requests the black holes episode constantly, and he doesn't even get the cat jokes yet. I sometimes listen even after I drop him off at school. #Science!
Just plain awesome.
Our whole familyâan engineer, a historian, an 8-year-old âphilosopherâ and horse lover, and a 5-year-old lego maniacâloves listening to Tumble together. The kids beg for it in the carâeven repeat episodes!
When a podcast can engage both kids AND adults, you know you've found a winner. Thanks so much for this great podcast! I'll be using it with my students!
We all love Tumble! I have a 2 & 4 year old. They don't always understand what's going on, but they still love to listen. I love all the interviews with scientists and explorers and how they expose my kids to all kinds of jobs. I'm excited for when my kids start asking their own scientific questions.One thing - even with the volume turned up, it's sometimes hard to hear especially Marshall's voice.
X I like it it is a good podcast it makes me feel smarter after I listen to it and I was learn something new
The podcast may be aimed at kids 8-12, but its designed to be listened to as a family. This makes sense to me, partially because of the advent of the STEM movement. The Tumble Manifesto asserts that "We struggle with understanding science in society" and I feel that to an extent that this is accurate. It's not uncommon to hear the phrase 'science/research suggests...' in the media, but what does it really mean? It means that a lot of curious people saw a problem, asked a question, and through a process of research and trial and error experimentation, came up with a (plausible) answer. And that is really what this podcast is after: inspiring curiosity. Kids are some of the sharpest observers of the world and unfortunately, that curiosity about the world often gets stifled by the principle of belief. Science isn't so much about belief as it is about wonderment: once upon a time, mankind wondered about celestial bodies, whether or not the Earth was really round, and what kept up from floating off into space. But there are so many other questions that need to be asked and answered, and others that have been asked that still need smart, curious people to answer them. That's what makes this podcast so enjoyable: it encourages kids to go out and explore and discover the world around them. It wants to foster the future generations so that they will go out and do their own investigations rather than depending on society at large to spoon feed them the answers. Plus, science is just cool. Seriously. Like, consider this for a moment: we see stars (balls of gas burning billions of miles away) as small points in the sky, but because they are so far from Earth, it's possible to still see a star even after it has stopped burning (for one reason or another). And it all has to do with how light travels through space. Every time we turn on a light in our house, it's because a scientist/engineer figured out a way to bring electricity to the homes of the populace. My point is, we need to know and reinforce that it's okay to ask questions, that we need to be going out into our backyard and communities and exploring the world around us and telling stories about what we find, and this podcast does that. So next time you have a problem, try science. You never know what you might find.
Lindsay & Marshall tell it like it is, answering real science questions from real kids with real expert interview, conversation & insight. Science!!! Woo!
It's hard to make a podcast that feels fun and upbeat for both kids and me...the adult. It's about science with the curiosity of a kid. Sooooo good.
Fantastic podcast to spark family and classroom discussions about science.
My 4 year old really enjoys listenging to this.
My 6 year old daughter loves this podcast, and unlike some of her other favorites it is not too cutesy or too simple for her 11 and 13 year old brothers to enjoy. Great for car trips and folding laundry with kids.
Informative episodes & the kids love it!
There are many good reasons why this is one of the top science programs for kids: The writing is strong, the chemistry between husband and wife team Lindsay and Marshall is great, the overall tone is playful and accessible. I also like that they are experimenting with featuring the voices of kids asking questions.
My son and I listen to the show multiple times a week and really enjoy it.
This is one of our go-to podcasts to spark interest in a homeschool science topic for our 7 year old son. We also listen in the car with our 3, and 1 year old. Then three year old only understands bits, and pieces but I'm so glad there is a family friendly podcast with the added bonus of being educational. I also enjoy hearing the experts they question. Thank you!
My kids (ages 3,7,9,11) and I listen to this podcast together. My 9 year old son laughs out loud, and all the kids enjoy the science. Thanks!
My son and I started listening to this podcast on a long drive and plowed through every episode. We now listen to it over and over. Itâs really great and entertaining and my son is asking all kinds of questions about science!
My girls are 12 and 14 and even though this podcast is geared toward younger kids, we still enjoy listening to this podcast as a family. I love that they don't talk down to kids, but use language that's easy for everyone to understand. My husband and I get as much out of this as the kids do. Highly recommended.
This is pretty cool and kids can use it as a fun way to study for a test and I'm a kid and I would use it to study for science.
Iâm Nate and Iâm 5 years old (almost 6). I like every episode of the Tumble Podcast. I like them because they always explain great details.
My kids love this Podcast. I find myself listening even when they aren't with me. You have inspired rich conversations and continued exploration. Thank you!
Love this show! The host have such a great rapport, and we all learn something new every week. Can't wait to hear more!
I checked this out with my 7 year old and he absolutely loved it. Compelling interviews made accessible for a younger audience while also keeping mom happy. Can't wait to see more!
Absolutely love this podcast! Really great for parents with children who want to get their kids interested in and excited about Science! The stories are very good. Would definitely recommend to anyone who has children. Two thumbs up!
Yes, this is geared toward kids, but my husband and I love it! I can honestly say that I've learned something new with each episode. The topics are super interesting, the subject matter is laid out very well, and the music is excellent! My husband's favorite is the tiny dinosaur episode, while I am partial to the Barton Springs salamander. Highly recommend!
My boys are 5 and 7 and we've really gotten into listening to the podcast when traveling in the car. They topics are interesting and engaging (which tones down the chaos in the car, a win for me) - and it definitely feeds their curiosity about the world.
The tumble podcast is amazing! They have found a great balance of sharing interesting and important science, and keeping it humorous and entertaining. The storytelling is top notch. I love that it encourages kids that there is still a lot to discover about the world. What an important concept for a young mind! I will be sharing this with many young families.
This podcaat is wonderful for car trips with the kids Highly recommended!
My almost-three-year-old isnât *quite* old enough for podcasts but I love immersing him with science so young (and it beats almost every other âkid-friendlyâ listening option by a mile!). The podcast has already sparked some interesting discussions and my husband and I eagerly look forward to new episodes. Keep up the good work!
Great new podcast for kids, focusing on science. Really creative editing and good stories elevate this over other straight interview type shows. This is created thoughtfully, with a really emphasis placed on story telling. Short and easy to understand for the younger crowd. Both my 5 and 10 year olds got a lot out of the shows so far.
Love this podcast. Its one of the few I subscribe to automatically. The show is a great way to introduce kids to science and learn something along the way yourself. The guests and hosts are equally smart and fun to listen to.
I love the banter between hosts and that they make science topics so accessible for kids (and adults!) Looking forward to hearing more!
My 6 and 8 year old loooove this. We're looking forward to the new episodes!
