Radiolab is a great podcasts that focuses on long-form journalism and storytelling but not all of the episodes are classroom appropriate. If you are looking for curated episodes that are more appropriate the classroom Radiolab has released a new show called Radiolab for Kids. From the Radiolab for Kids website:
It’s a place where we’ve collected Radiolab’s most family-friendly content. (Because we all know that over the years, some of the content has been…er…NOT so family friendly!) From “What do dogs see when they look at the rainbow?” to “Do animals laugh?” the topics are squeaky clean (mostly) and all about curiosity. Radiolab for Kids is sure to delight and engage the most curious minds.
