This podcast does a great job of introducing kids to science and exploration through interviews with people working in these fields. The hosts of How We Explore offer important context, definitions and insight, as they're also National Geographic Explorers like their guests. Don't expect a lot of bells and whistles — the episodes rely heavily on interviews and commentary and less on audio effects — but the friendly hosts do inject age-appropriate humor into the episodes.

How We Explore is perfect for curious listeners who want to learn more about hands-on science careers. There is a lot of good advice about how exploration can happen anywhere, even in your own backyard. And by providing diverse women in STEM as role models in fields like astronomy, archaeology and volcanology, this podcast can inspire others to not only reach for the stars, but past them.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
