I'm the Father of 3 boys: 9 year old, 7 year old, & 5 year old (as of summer 2018)
Eleven-year-old Holiday is pulled from the icy waters of Alaska with no memory of who she is or where she came from. Are her mom and dad really who they say they are? And when she begins to develop incredible abilities, she’ll soon discover she’s not alone in the world. From the award-winning creators of The Unexplainable Disappearance of Mars Patel and The Ghost of Jessica Majors, comes Six Minutes, a new mystery adventure for the whole family. Starting on March 1st, new six minute episodes, twice a week, all year long…and beyond. Produced by Gen-Z Media in partnership with PRX. For more great Gen-Z shows visit http://bestrobotever.com

My kids love this podcast. Each episode is a classic cliff hanger and perfect for short trips in the car (and long trips if someone is on DJ duty to get to each episode :).

In the era of fake news, kids need to learn to be able to tell what’s true from what’s false. And what better way to do that than a game show that puts kids in the driver’s seat, adults on the hot seat, and a sound-effects robot strapped to the roof? Each week, a kid interviews two experts in a particular topic, one of which is a genuine, credentialed expert, the other a liar. Hilarious and fast-paced, the show teaches kids to ask insightful questions, weigh the evidence before them, and trust their guts. For more great Gen-Z shows, visit http://bestrobotever.com

My 9 year old boy LOVES this. My 7 year old boy really likes it. My 5 year old boy can sit through it, but doesn't really get into it.

The boys LOVE this one. The stories are all kid-written, adult performed, making them professional absurdism. And, it gets the kids interested in writing their own stories. A win all around.

THE TRUTH makes movies for your ears. They're short stories that are sometimes dark, sometimes funny, and always intriguing. Every story is different, but they all take you to unexpected places using only sound. If you're new, some good starting places are: Silvia's Blood, That's Democracy, Moon Graffiti, Tape Delay, or whatever's most recent. Listening with headphones is encouraged! We're a proud member of Radiotopia from PRX.
