Podcasts and Audio Apps for Kids

A million podcasts about every conceivable topic are out there for parents, but more and more audio apps are being made for kids. From awesome storytelling to scientific facts, historical knowledge to news you can use, there's something for everyone. And when you're on the road, audio content is a great way to enjoy something together. Thankfully, many of these apps also let you listen when you're offline, so the fun doesn't have to end when the Wi-Fi does. Also, many come with a free trial, so you can sample the goods before subscribing.
