Commuting to and fro the myriad of children’s activities can produce at best napping children and at worst antsy, screaming ones. If you’re like many parents and have been searching for the perfect car ride solution that lies somewhere between educational and entertaining, why not look to the podcast. Much like its function in entertaining commuting adults, the kid-podcast can be a valuable tool in your parental handbag for combatting the long drive. Instead of subjecting yourself to inane audio books with creepy voiceovers, you can turn to these eight kid-friendly podcasts to keep you—and the kiddos—from losing your collective family-mind, while sitting in traffic trying to get from flute lessons to karate class and back home again.

This is a great list! Another new kids podcast we are enjoying is called Noodle Loaf. It reminds me a lot of the kids’ show Yo Gabba Gabba and it has been making my afternoon commute with my 5 year-old so much fun!

If you’ve got middle school kids, check out the Book Club for Kids podcast. Totally kid-centric. The kids talk about a novel, often they interview the author, plus there is a celebrity reader. People like Valente Rodriguez from the George Lopez show or former spy Valerie Plame.

I couldn’t agree more with your list and we also love Noodle Loaf, Rosie!

I would also recommend Aaron’s World (www.mydogrocket.com) as a show that the whole family can get into. It has a strong grounding in science and includes an interesting story, lots of dinosaurs, and some of the most immersive sound effects you’ll ever hear. Also it’s hosted by and starring an adorable 6 year old! :) (though he’s quite a bit older by the end of it!)
