Our Editor's Take

The Tumble Science Podcast for Kids podcast is here to help solve science mysteries. The world is a big and marvelous place with many mysteries. The odds are that people know curious kids who are always asking, “But why?” Hosted by a science journalist and a teacher, this podcast is a great fit for young, curious minds. Episodes answer science questions from the silly, "What is a Butt?" to the cerebral, "Do Dreams Have Meaning?"

The many realms of science are well-covered in the Tumble Science Podcast for Kids podcast. These episodes, from physics to plant biology, give kids more ways to engage with the world. The show offers a range of knowledge for all ages. Hosts Lindsay and Marshall bring in diverse voices from across the science world.

Podcast listeners will find out why cats make that rumbling sound when they get petted. They will also learn about the animal kingdom. From silky spiders to polar bears, the hosts examine how animals survive and help the world. Plus, the tortoise might have a slow and steady replacement soon. In one episode, the team discusses how slow-moving sloths use their (lack of) speed as a superpower!

Across episodes, discoveries complement history lessons on underrepresented scientists. The hosts share about the Black botanists who advanced plant science. Whether kids love outer space, ancient fossils, or microscopic viruses, there's an episode for every child. Plus, there are plenty of jokes woven into engaging content. This program shows how educational shows can be fun. Even parents and caregivers will enjoy the lessons this podcast offers. Tumble Science Podcast for Kids has new episodes every few weeks.
