“Wow in the World” is a podcast for curious kids, ages 5-12, that leads listeners on a journey away from their screens, inside their brain, out into space, and deep into the coolest new stories in science, technology, and innovation. The whole idea behind “Wow in the World” is to help foster a sense of wonder with kids and to make them feel that they’re a part of this world, too!
Hosts Guy Raz (NPR’s Ted Radio Hour, How I Built This) and Mindy Thomas (SiriusXM’s Kid’s Place Live) weave a character-driven and humor heavy narrative around the latest stories from peer-reviewed scientific journals about incredibly cool things happening in the world right now. Stories that spark listeners’ sense of wonder and ignite their curiosity to find out more. Stories that make kids excited about the world and their place in it. Stories that prompt both kids and grown-ups to lean in and say “Wow!” ~from tinkercast.com
