Why do we laugh?

Brains On! Science podcast for kids

Mar 12 2024 • 34 mins

Laughter is like a language and humans are really good at understanding it.


In this episode, Molly and co-host Milla decode different kinds of laughs, from uncontrollable goofy laughter to chuckles that make others feel good.


They’ll meet laugh experts Sophie Scott and Adrienne Wood and test their knowledge in three rounds of the game show: Laugh Attack!


Plus, a new mystery sound for you to guess!
