REACH is great for all ages!
I love waking up to this podcast - I really enjoy learning about space, but I must admit that I usually listen for its calm energy and a reminder that there's more going on in the universe than in my little life. Reach has a great balance of keeping information and learning fresh, and it's so cool to hear directly from astronauts and others in the industry! Thanks Brian and Meredith!
Prefect podcast for kids
Wonderful podcast for kids who are interested in science and space.
Great content dampened by execution
There’s so much to like when the hosts are actually talking. But the segments they throw in to be fun, like a moon talking in first person in a weird character voice, makes it hard to listen to and easy to tune out. My five year old isn’t engaged, and my eleven year old would rather have the information presented more clearly.
