"It’s aimed at kids, but let’s face it, this sort of intel would smarten up some adults too."

Sarah HKWT - Have Kid Will Teardrop - Nov 30, 2017

"One thing I love about this podcast is that is acted out by adults but there are lots of kids involved as well. They ask the questions and the adults go out and help them find the answers to a wealth of various topics."

Frannie Ucciferri - Common Sense Media - Jul 14, 2017

"What makes this one different is it tends to skew a bit older, both in its questions and answers, and it has a different kid co-host each week. The result is a fun show that's as silly as it is educational."
