Full of wild characters and fun animal facts, this show encourages listeners to learn about the creatures and people around us and listen to what we may share in common. Nice to Meet You is short, witty, and sure to entertain. It will be especially interesting for kids who love animals and science. With animated voice actors and high-quality audio, the show imagines the characteristics of various creatures, bringing them to life with style while also peppering in factoids.

While chock-full of fun facts, this show educates more through entertainment than structured teaching. It's a fun and easy to listening experience for both kids and adults, but it does tend to rely on stereotypes to characterize the subjects. Sometimes this comes across humorously and well-natured, such as a mother and red panda discussing nitpicking their kids before the mother communicates with her son and sharing that this is a way to show her love. At other times the animal-human comparisons come off awkward and almost inappropriate, such as the implication that a moth being like a butterfly might be offensive and "insect-ist." Overall, this podcast is a fun show that promotes empathy, connection, and curiosity.

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.
