A half-serious podcast about children's media, parenting, and the nature of childhood. We're a couple of parents who analyze and discuss books, TV shows, movies, games, and other media for kids, both past and present. Hosted by Denise and Kurt Schiller.
Thanksgiving Specials (feat. Malcolm)
We're joined by Malcolm (https://twitter.com/MalcolmRambert) to journey through a slew of kids Thanksgiving specials, from 1972's A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving to (much better) modern specials from Hey Arnold! and Craig of the Creek.

Blippi Is A Worker
Kurt and Chris discuss crappy children's YouTube channels, faceless content mills, the evils of advertising, and Baby Shark. Plus, we unmask a well known children's YouTube host.
Over the Garden Wall
We're talking Halloween, spooky stuff, and the 2014 gothic folk adventure Over the Garden Wall with returning guest and new cohost Chris Woodward. Truly, the Grinch is gonna getcha.

Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue (feat. Brett Payne)
Hey folks, we're back! And we're joined by Brett Payne of Street Fight Radio to talk about the 1990 anti-drug mega-crossover event Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue. We also discuss leftist parenting, DARE, beautiful shroom experiences, Reagan-era deregulation, and — shockingly — a little-known U.S. senator from Delaware.

COPS (feat. Andray Domise)
We're joined by writer and journalist Andray Domise to talk about depictions of cops in kids cartoons and their role in normalizing police violence against black, indigenous, and other marginalized communities. We also discuss parenting in times of social and political change, the late-80s sci-fi cartoon COPS, the sci-fi western Marshall BraveStarr, and anti-drug PSAs.
