How EarBuds Podcast Collective works:
Each week, a theme is chosen by one of our curators. That curator finds 5 podcast episodes (from anywhere!) to go along with that theme. Listen to these podcasts by clicking on the links above, through the RadioPublic app, or you can find (most of) them on your favorite podcast app (iTunes, Stitcher, Overcast…)
PODCAST CURATOR’S NAME: Jonathan Messinger, writer and producer of The Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian (along with his 8-year-old son, Griffin, who’s Jonathan’s editor).
WHY THIS THEME?: Some of the most creative work in the podcasting world is going into shows made just for kids. Podcast-loving people everywhere will dig these episodes, too.
MONDAY EPISODE (10/9): Circle Round – Stella and the Dragon – 17 minutes
TUESDAY EPISODE (10/10): But Why – Is it Ever OK to Break a Rule? – 18 minutes
WEDNESDAY EPISODE (10/11): The Past and the Curious – The Cheesiest – 29 minutes
THURSDAY EPISODE (10/12): Brains On! – Mars: Our Next Home Planet? – 33 minutes
FRIDAY EPISODE (10/13): The Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian – Birthday Surprise – 27 minutes
SHAMELESS PROMO: Along with making Finn Caspian, I co-chair a non-profit called Kids Listen, whose mission is to support creators making podcasts for kids, and set standards around quality and content. And we just released an app full of shows just for kids!
CROWD-SOURCING QUESTION: What kind of podcast—that doesn’t exist yet—do you think your kid would love?
