Squiz Kids

By Squiz Media

Squiz Kids is a news podcast, just for kids. Published each weekday at 7 am, it's an 8 minutes of age-appropriate news delivered with positivity and humour. We won’t shy away from the hard news stories, but in the usual Squiz tone we'll approach it with positivity, humour, and without opinion. So make it part of your daily routine by whacking it on over breakfast, during the drive to school, or for all the Squiz teachers out there, in the classroom. Squiz Kids is proudly supported by the Judith Nielsen Institute for Journalism and Ideas. Want a birthday shoutout?
