"Lots of well-researched information. This podcast is absolutely suitable for the entire family to listen to, but a lot of the humor can feel forced and may make young teens roll their eyes before eventually tuning out. …"

"All you need to know is that this is basically Radiolab for kids.It’s the ultimate example of a podcast that’s done so well that kids barely even notice that it’s educational."

"This US podcast has been going since 2015 and is presented by teacher Marshall Escamilla and science journalist Lindsay Patterson. The result is a warm and engaging show that doesn’t just broadcast at kids but includes them too."

"Tumble entertains...Tumble also inspires...As scientific illiteracy scuppers the world’s ability to act on our most pressing problems, it is vital that projects like Tumble succeed."

"Tumble offered very intricate and complex topics, and used tough vocabulary, but it also had jokes that were geared towards younger kids. So for me, while I liked the information I learned, I was also slightly annoyed by the comedy part. Between Georgia and me, I am usually the one who is, well, harder to please. But I actually like Tumble quite a bit and was not bothered as much by the jokes and laughing. That said, I listened to every episode, despite jokes, and I loved all the information I learned."
