Little News Ears

Little News Ears is a podcast for parents, teachers, and anybody who wants to learn about the news in a simple and different way. With 10 different shows and counting, it is made for kids to improve their critical thinking skills and ultimately increase their understanding of democracy. Kids are free to make any type of news as long as it is based on the truth! All episodes are curated (and occasionally written) by Dan Buck, a school leader at an independent school in Texas with 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 Dragon Ranger Owl) 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...
