10 Great Podcasts for Kids & Families


Taking a roadtrip? Or maybe just driving to town over and over again for errands? I completely understand being desperate for peace. I have spent hours searching for something entertaining and educational that ISN’T screen time – this is where podcasts come in handy! We have listened to several podcasts over the years as a way to make our long drives less boring. And as a family who tries, but doesn’t always succeed, to limit screens, podcasts are a great alternative! The age groups are just a suggestion since every child is different and maturity levels vary!


Ages 2-5

Sesame Street has their own podcast

Hank the Cowdog narrated by Matthew McConaughey

Ages 6-10

Story Pirates is full of silly storytelling by children.  The stories are scripted and written with theme songs that make them hilarious & fun to listen tom even for grownups!

The Past and the Curious tells stories from history that are engaging for the whole family!


Most Ages

Tumble Science Podcast for Kids tells stories of science discovery.

Classics for Kids introduces kids to classical music in a fun and engaging way!  These are short 6 minute segments that tell the story of different composers with details that are interesting to children.

Wow in the World is full of great comedy, science, technology and innovation.  *For those who are interested in avoiding or enjoying, they do talk about evolution and gender in a few of their episodes.
