About this app

Podcasts are a perfect screen-free activity for kids. Listen to favorite shows, and discover new ones, with the Kids Listen app!

Kids Listen is a nonprofit made up of podcasters, parents, and teachers advocating for high-quality audio content for kids. We understand that kids are deep and thoughtful listeners. In our survey of family listening habits, we found that 74% of kid listeners initiate discussion after hearing a podcast. 80% request to listen to an episode again… and again. 20% listened to an episode 10 or more times!

Parents told us that they wanted an easy way for kids to find great, age-appropriate podcasts. That’s why we created the Kids Listen app.

I've downloaded, set up an account, paid for a subscription, and nothing will play. The little circle just spins. My internet is working fine, hence the ability to download and review the app. Parents are willing to pay to have a kid-safe podcast app, but the basic functionality needs to actually work.

App doesnt work, crashes anytime I try to play from phone, I have never gotten it to actually play a podcast. Also, the website is free, you just have to watch an ad before the podcast, but the app makes you pay for a subscription.

I purchased the subscription so that we could listen to six minutes. Each time I try to play an episode it loads then closes the app!! This is ridiculous and needs to be fixed now.
