Brains On!

Got curious kids? Check out Brains On! It's a podcast featuring science and kids co-produced by KPCC and Minnesota Public Radio. We ask questions and go wherever the answers take us. Sometimes that means talking to a food scientist or a snake handler, other times that means putting on a play about sound waves or writing songs about sleep. A different kid co-hosts each episode. We talk to them about the interesting stuff they’re doing and the things they think about. It’s a science lesson for your ears – so join us and turn your brains on!


Co-produced by CityLab from The Atlantic and KPCC, we'll have conversations about cities of the future and the people creating them.
