Why are podcasts so popular? Simply put, podcasts are an easily accessible way to consume information and entertainment. Pick any topic — from news to conspiracy theory, history to historical fiction, art, technology, science, comedy, drama or music — and there is something for everyone. Parents have hundreds of podcasts to choose from for their kids. Lucky for you, Parentology did the deep dive to bring a list of fifteen best podcasts for kids, tweens, and teens.
Before we dive in, it’s important to acknowledge that not all podcasts are meant to be educational. That’s fine. Engaging in content that’s purely entertainment relieves stress and gives the mind a break. Podcasts make commutes to school and after school activities less monotonous, and allow everyone to share subjects that interest them with different people in the family. This not only helps you learn about each other, but you might even find your next family pastime.
With that said, here are Parentology’s favorite popular podcasts for kids.
