Squiz parents have spoken and what they want is a news podcast, like The Squiz Today, they can listen to with their kids. Squiz Kids will be released at 7am each weekday and is designed for primary aged children.

In under 8 minutes, it'll give your kids a snapshot of the days news. We won't shy away from the hard news stories, but in the usual Squiz tone we'll approach it with positivity, humour, and without opinion.

So make it part of your daily routine by whacking it on over breakfast, during the drive to school, or for all the Squiz teachers out there, in the classroom.

Customer Reviews

Darsp ,

The kids love it!

The perfect way to learn about current news, in an informative and fun manner. We love listening to this podcast on the way to school each morning.

ParisCarver ,

News without the nasties

Our 20 minute school drive is even more fun with sQuiz. I want my kids to learn about the world and this 7 minute daily podcast is perfect.

Miss 9 & Ms 48 ,

Miss 9 loves it

My 9yr old lives it and I get a lot out of it too. It’s short and snappy and doesn’t talk down to kids which is great. Great work guys.
