A podcast to listen with the kids in the car

My children are 6, 9 and 11. Finding something to listen that we all like is a challenge. This is how we found one of our favourite podcasts.

On a car trip going back home, late, after spending the day out. The children went from little angels, playing “I spy”, to green monsters, fighting and screaming, in very little time.

I was desperately trying to find a radio station, an audio book, anything to bring back some sanity, when I found this jewel of a podcast:

SHORT & CURLY is a fast-paced fun-filled ethics podcast for kids and their parents, with questions and ideas to really get you thinking. It asks curly questions like about animals, technology, school, pop culture and the future.

The first podcast that we listened to was “Do you have to love your sibling?” Extremely appropriate.

And we have listened to all the episodes since then, leading into deep conversations on the way to school.

An out-of-control train is heading straight for a group of people who don’t know they are about to be hit.  You, as the driver, have some life and death decisions to make.  What will you do?

Thank you Cécile! Noting it down. “What is The Biggest Number” episode caught my attention immediately. We have to listed to that one soon.

Around 20 minutes. They ask you to hit pause twice, at the beginning and at the end to answer a question. We listen to them on the way to school, one episode lasts around 2 rides, sometimes more if we get heated discussions.
