No longer exists in the described format

I don't think this podcast exists anymore... the link now goes to something similar, but it's more about books than current events called "The children's book podcast (stories worth noting)"

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This podcast is a wonderful way for kids to think about their role in addressing problematic systems, decisions, and behaviors that impact traditionally marginalized groups. The show's intention is to center kids within history as it's unfolding, but their voices and opinions aren't present in the podcast. And the language used and topics covered may require further conversations for teens to fully understand.

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.
