Excellent!

Great podcast for kids and adults to listen to together.

Interesting for everyone

Fun, engaging, and interesting. The length is enough to learn something but not so long to be cumbersome. It’s so much fun that a kid and her grown-up co-host and invite experts on as guests, and the quiz element ties it all together without any pressure. Highly recommended.
