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.

A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this podcast.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Worth Noting is a podcast focused on current events that illuminate inequity and injustice. Topics are timely, historical, and sometimes controversial, ranging from mask mandates to abortion rights to sexual abuse. The podcast provides a space for teens (and adults!) to understand more about each issue through language, definitions, and perspectives. Some heavier topics could potentially prompt strong emotions, memories, or trauma.

What’s It About?
WORTH NOTING is a current events podcast for teens. The show aims to break down history as it's being made. Episodes are generally 10 minutes or less in length and cover topics related to human rights, social justice, politics, and safety. For example, one episode includes a detailed account of a school banning books that offer diverse representations of people and history. Another covers the direct harm associated with historical reenactments. Host Matthew Winner is the only voice on the show; he reads a written script that includes a detailed account of alarming stories that exemplify a larger systemic problem.
Is It Any Good?
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.
