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.

Great app but...

It is a very good app that I recommend for anyone who enjoys a podcast. There is such a verity of genres that you can’t get bored. My kids and I love listening to it! However, after the free trial, you can only listen to the most recent podcasts. I would really like to see the price lowered. But overall, it’s a great app. 😀😁

I love listening to six minutes but when I try to log out it crashes and makes me mad, I’ve been trying to log out for about ten times, and everyone loves six minutes in my class and I’m trying to log out and see if I can log in to my school Account but every time I try to log out and get in to my school account it always kicks me out and makes me mad, and it should be free like it’s not fair that you have to pay for KID FRIENDLY Podcasts it’s just not fair but I love listening to six minutes so can you please fix the app, I just love listening to six minutes and I can’t because I have to pay for a kid friendly app so can you please please fix the app I really really want to listen to six minutes it is my favorite podcast on this app and I can’t listen to it because YOU HAVE TO FREAKING PAY TO LISTEN TO KID FRIENDLY PODCASTS SO PLEASE FIX IT AND I MEAN I NEED IT TO BE FIXED SO I CAN LISTEN TO SIX MINUTES....
