Little News Ears is a podcast for parents, teachers, and anybody who wants to learn about the news in a simple way. With 10 different shows and counting, it is made for kids (and adults) who want to learn about news in a different way. All episodes are curated, and often written by Dan Buck, a school leader at an independent school in Texas with close to 20 years of experience as a teacher and school leader around the world. There are several types of show, including longer and more in-depth shows (e.g., BoxerBlu & Bram and Cherry, Bird, Cow!) and shorter headline shows that focus on many different types of news, including the black community, LGBTQ issues, and a favorite for many kids: weird and gross news! Little News Ears hits the big issues in news with sensitivity toward different points of view. First time listening? Please be aware that Little News Ears aims to be positive, inspiring, challenging, funny, and educational--but it is something quite different than typical media for a 4 year old and up. Complex concepts are broken down whenever possible. War, violence, and generally nightmarish things are de-emphasized, if not ignored completely.
