    There is no question too silly for this storytelling podcast hosted by Mr. Eric O’Keefe. What if sharks had legs? What if a tiny dragon lived in your closet? What if the Seattle Seahawks gave Marshawn Lynch the ball at the end of Super Bowl XLIX? These topics are all fair game, making for an incredibly entertaining listen for parents and kids alike. Regular listeners are even encouraged to call in with their own questions, which are crafted into original stories using fun voices, making for unrelenting ridiculousness.

    This is a musical-themed podcast that is also all about teaching kids about science. It’s not the most mature thing in the world, but if your kids love silly songs and you want them to learn a thing or two, Noodle Loaf is worth its salt. Plus, at about 10-minutes apiece, the time commitment here is pretty low, which, is kind of perfect for the attention span of a pre-schooler.

  • The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd

    This podcast started in 2004, so there are a lot of Dr. Floyd adventures piled up to get you across those boring parts of South Dakota (or Nebraska). Each podcast is only five minutes long and filled with Dr. Floyd’s life-threatening situations against his nemesis Dr. Steve. Dr. Floyd and his crew do things like get taken prisoner by Time & Space Worms, and then go back in time to stop Dr. Steve from stealing lots of things — like Annie Oakley’s gun and the Wright brothers’ plane. It’s full-on fun.

    Fiction at its finest. From classic fairytales to modern-day stories, Storynory has something for everyone. One of my favorites — “How Love and Peace Came To The Woods” — is from Aesop’s Fables. The podcast brings the stories to us from all over the world and each episode is short and sweet to match the attention spans of even our littlest ones.
