Podcasts can be used to support children’s learning, whilst giving them increased access to discussions and information. They can also be an alternative source of entertainment and relaxation away from a screen. Saskia Ligthart from NPO, has been working in children’s podcasting in response to creating extra content for children to consume during lockdown. Her experience of commissioning and creating podcasts for children is leading the way in an area of audio that is only just getting started. Jake Harris is an executive producer at Yoto as well as hosting the platform’s daily podcast for children. His background as a teacher gives him a unique perspective in the advantages of creating podcasts for children.
