Q&A: Recommend an Educational Podcast or Website for Families


Do you have an educational PODCAST for kids to recommend? Share your favorite science, history, etc., podcast for young students and their families.

Is there an educational WEBSITE your family enjoys using that you could recommend?

  • Carrie St John recommends:The Encyclopedia of Life, Museum of Natural History, Museum of Modern Art and PBSKids Dinosaur Train Field Guide.”
  • Sienna Wildfield recommends: “BrainPop, a non-commercial subscription-based web site that consists of both quality and entertaining educational curriculum, presented through an effective use of animation and web technology.

    The Stuff You Should Know podcast is great! Not all episodes are appropriate for kids, but with a little judicious filtering, there’s a lot of information to be had. feed://www.howstuffworks.com/podcasts/stuff-you-should-know.rss
