Tinybop Loves: Radiolab | Tinybop
"Radiolab asks great questions. Each show explores a single idea through story, interview, and inquiry. The lushly produced hour is usually split into three acts that explore the idea from unique angles to try to get to the center of the question being asked. The episodes can be heard on public radio, as a podcast, and through an app. But perhaps the best experience of Radiolab is via the show’s website which—in addition to the shows—houses a blog, videos, and other stories that supplement each episode.

While Radiolab is not specifically geared towards children, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better way to introduce kids to big ideas. Some episodes will not be appropriate for children, but those that are —about zoos, the gut, cities, or time—will be richly rewarding for young curious listeners. We like to play Radiolab shows during long car rides. Almost invariably the kids will tune in and start asking questions."

Heading East: Pens
"Over the past week I've twice heard twenty-somethings wonder whether kids growing up today, kids who were practically born with iPhones in hand, will still have the capacity for wonder.

Yesterday as a present for his first day of second grade I brought home an erasable gel pen for my iPhone savvy six year old. After a brief demonstration, he spontaneously hugged me, "I've been waiting for this pen my entire life!"

I think the kids are alright."
