Do you speak “kid?” We do! Wild Interest is the new podcast created and hosted completely by kids. Sibling creators Nichole and Evan and their crew of kid contributors invite listeners to learn about the beauty and mystery of the world from a child’s point of view. The series covers science, fun facts, natural mysteries and more — episodes are as eclectic and wondrous as your child's mind! In addition to on-the-ground reporting, kids host engaging one-on-one interviews with amazing guests from grammy award winning composers, to star NFL quarterbacks, to Nobel winning scientists. Segments like Grandparent Stories invite young listeners to share inspiring conversations that span generations. In My Favorite Sound, kids from all over the world share field recordings of sounds they love. Jokes, riddles, and other hijinks are woven into every episode. Rooted in the essential human tradition of storytelling, Wild Interest is a celebration of the wisdom, curiosity, and creativity of children.
