Children’s Podcast on the Wonders of Science and Technology

NPR has announced the launch of Wow in the World, a new podcast for children aged 5–12 that illuminates the wonders of science, technology, discovery, and inventions. Starting on May 15, NPR’s Guy Raz and SiriusXM’s Mindy Thomas will take children and their grownups on a journey into the most incredible science and kid-friendly news stories of the week. The episodes will highlight exciting new research about space, dinosaurs, animals, technology, and human origins. Each episode begins with a series of questions that lead to an explanation about a new amazing scientific discovery or finding. For example, “How long would it take to get to the closest star outside our solar system?” or “How did we Homo sapiens come to dominate the planet?” or “How do astronauts poop in space?” Through comedy and conversation, along with voices from real children, Mindy and Guy make the news fun and interesting. NPR will distribute the show, and Tinkercast, a new production company that focuses on family-friendly content, will produce the program.
