Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Kids will find a lot to like about this podcast, as it's a well-told, exciting, and often humorous introduction to Greek mythology. Greeking Out will especially appeal to kids who love action and adventure, history, or mythology. As a podcast, it's pleasant to listen to and the limited incidental music and sound effects add to the drama but don't overwhelm. The banter between the host and the Oracle of WiFi does break up the story a bit, but it also ensures that kids won't lose interest. Without seeming like an overtly educational podcast, Greeking Out teaches some vocabulary and history, and provides a good background for kids who want to explore mythology further.

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.
