Best Kids Podcasts

During a long car ride this past weekend, I put on some episodes of Wow in the World for my four year old, and he loved them. I particularly liked that they were better than his usual request of poppy kids music. Unfortunately, episodes only come out twice a week. What are other podcasts, preferably short and educational, that are aimed at young kids?

Brains On! is very similar to Wow in the World (and honestly I find it less annoying).

I was just on an episode of But Why? a VPR podcast about kids' questions. No music, just Q&A type stuff.

I used to really enjoy NPR's How To Do Everything, which is not a kids' podcast per se, but it's very kid-appropriate and had a lot of kiddo listeners. It's no longer publishing but there's a long back catalog.

- Brains On
- Storynory
- Some episodes of Radiolab ... Argentine Invasion was a favorite. It talks about life-or-death battles between ant colonies!

Not a podcast but we listened to TONS of chapter books on tape in the car when mine was little.

My kid and the adults riding along with her adore Story Pirates for road trips. The concept is like Drunk History, only swapping a 5-to-10-year-old storyteller for the drunk, and audio theatre for TV as the medium.

Tumble, Brains On, and Storytime are our favorites.
