A fast-paced fun-filled ethics podcast for kids and their parents that asks those curly questions. From banning lollies to trusting robots, and from colonising other planets to eating pets, Short & Curly covers it all.
BITE — Who gets the biggest piece of cake?
If you make something delicious to eat, do you have to share it evenly with other people? You did all the work, so is it fair to have to share?
Today's BITE: If you make a cake is it okay to have a bigger slice than everyone else?
BITE - Parents playing favourites
If parents give more attention to one of your siblings does that mean they're playing favourites? Is it okay to give you less attention than you RIGHTLY DESERVE???
Today's BITE: Is it okay for your parents to give more attention to your younger sibling?
Thanks to Maddie for this excellent question.
BITE — You look funny
People get judged for how they dress, the way they do their hair and what kind of body they have.
But what would life be like if we just ignored all our differences completely?
Today's BITE: Would the world be a better place if everyone looked the same?
BITE — Girls’ teams and boys’ teams
Why are most sports trams girls only and boys only? Even when it's the same type of sport they are playing!
Today's BITE: Should we get rid of separate boys and girls' sports teams?
Thanks to Charlie for this excellent question.
BITE — Murdering murderers
If someone does something bad, is it just and fair to do that same thing back to them?
Today's BITE: Is it wrong to murder a murderer?
Thanks to Maddison for this excellent question.
Molly's PICK — Would you donate your kidney to a stranger?
Molly went on a deep dive into the Short & Curly archive to find you one of her fave episodes. It's all about whether you should donate a kidney to a family member or friend if they needed one.

Review and request
Hi Carl, Matt and Molly, my name is Maya and I am ten years old. I love your podcast so much, it’s so funny and immersive, and when I listen to it it’s so fun I barely even know I’m learning. My younger brother, Rémy and I listen to it every time in the car. Can you do a podcast about the environment and how humans have changed it. 😁
