Keeping our kids occupied and entertained can sometimes be a struggle. This is especially true when we want to remove them from a screen! Podcasts seem to be one answer, so I’ve pulled together a list of over 10 podcasts for your 9-13 year old with varying interests.
In the last year, I’ve discovered listening to podcasts as a way to learn and be engaged without sitting in front of a screen! Podcasts are a great way for kids and families to do the same. You can listed together, or have kids listen on their own. And don’t worry, they don’t have to be in front of a computer screen or a device!
How to listen to a podcast
ON A SMART SPEAKER
Ask your smart speaker to play a specific podcast by name.
“Alexa, please play the podcast Timestorm (or any other show by name).”
“Ok Google, listen to Feeling My Flo podcast (or any other show by name).”
“Hey Siri, play the podcast (podcast name).”
ON A COMPUTER
Visit any TRAX podcast page and click on the play button to begin listening. The episode will begin playing immediately.
ON A PHONE
You can download or stream podcasts from your phone using a podcast listening app. On an Apple device, tap on the purple Apple Podcasts icon. On an Android device, tap on the white Google Podcasts icon.
You can also listen to podcasts on Spotify, Stitcher, RadioPublic, NPR One, and many other apps on a mobile device like a phone or tablet.
Once you open the app, search by name, and begin listening immediately. Subscribe to/follow any show for free to receive new episodes automatically when they become available.
