Newsy Pooloozi: A kids news podcast for curious minds

Newsy Pooloozi: An Educational News Podcast for Kids

Newsy Pooloozi is a weekly kids news podcast for curious and open minds. Our educational podcast covers everything from top science news to the latest in tech, arts, culture, current affairs and more. Here’s a snappy lil’ trailer about how we started!

Each podcast episode also takes a deeper dive into our “Big Story of the Week.” These are bite-sized educational stories for kids — Spain’s ghost village, the US gun debate, heatwaves and Martian lakes.

We also end each episode with an “Oddball Story,” like the chocolate snow phenomenon in Switzerland, Hong Kong’s jail for the dumbest thieves or the cows with faces on their butts in Botswana. It’s edutainment at its finest (if we do say so ourselves)!

Newsy Pooloozi is also a news podcast for kids by kids. That’s why our correspondents are children from all over the world — Asia, Africa, Europe, UK and North America.

Oh… one last thing! The team behind Newsy Pooloozi, a grassroots educational podcast for kids, is a passionate mother-daughter duo. We’re also a proud member of the Kids Listen network and made two of Common Sense Media’s lists of most recommended podcasts as well as the New York Times 30 best podcasts for kids!
