Podcasts for Parents: Robot Adventures and Zadie Smith



 

Happy December! As usual, I've selected one podcast for kids and one for their parents. For kids, the radio adventures of Dr. Floyd: laughs, robots and time-travel, yessss! And for the grown-ups, author Zadie Smith talks about her experiences with race as a daughter and mother.

 

FOR KIDS (Ages 6+)

The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd (4 mins)

First airing as a radio show in 2004, The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd just started a re-broadcast podcast (ch-cha!). In this premiere episode, we meet Dr. Floyd, his protégé, and their faithful robot companion, C.H.I.P.S., among others. Stay tuned for time travel and villainous hijinks.

FOR PARENTS

Fresh Air: Zadie Smith (50 mins)

In this episode of Fresh Air, author Zadie Smith, whose new book Swing Time came out in November, talks with Terri Gross about her experiences as a mixed-race daughter, and about being a mother of mixed-race children herself. It’s a fascinating and insightful conversation.
