Podcasts are a perfect screen-free activity for kids. Listen to favorite shows, and discover new ones, with the Kids Listen app!
Kids Listen is a nonprofit made up of podcasters, parents, and teachers advocating for high-quality audio content for kids. We understand that kids are deep and thoughtful listeners. In our survey of family listening habits, we found that 74% of kid listeners initiate discussion after hearing a podcast. 80% request to listen to an episode again… and again. 20% listened to an episode 10 or more times!
Parents told us that they wanted an easy way for kids to find great, age-appropriate podcasts. That’s why we created the Kids Listen app.

Ratings and Reviews
Best out there- but still super white
Kids listen looks like the best app of its type and my kids and I will use it a lot. We listen to LOTS of stories & podcasts. But I bought it hoping it would highlight POC written, produced, or performed podcasts for kids. Sadly, not so. Still looks super white. Hey Kids Listen could you help families connect with stories told not about by BY POC? So far the best places I’ve found for this are Audible kids and the Moth website many of the kid-told stories are by kids of color. But would LOVE a place like Kids Listen that recognized families like mine are looking for and value this, so it’s already highlighted. ❤️
The BEST app for podcasts for kids
Finally, a podcast app just for kids! It's made by the creators of podcasts for kids, so I feel really good about supporting it.I love the curated playlist feature. Finding our favorite shows is super intuitive and I can finally let my kid explore podcasts on his own.
Hi,I love your podcast,six minutes, but there is a problem.
Every time I go into the app,it crashes and it makes me mad.
But it works for computers. I tried it at school. Keep strong!
