Podcasts for Kids

Podcasts are a great (and mostly free!) screen-free resource of both fun and learning for parents and kids. Topics can cover nearly anything from original stories to world events to science discoveries. Here are links to podcasts recommended by a variety of resources and brought together by BML Children’s Librarians. Age recommendations are general guides for you and your child. Every child is different, so explore what works best ahead of time.
