Summer is here and it is the perfect time to set your child’s imagination free. With road trip season upon us, a podcast for kids sure will come in handy! Children’s podcasts are also perfect for bedtime. Kids are sure to love the new MOLLY OF DENALI Podcast. It is a great, adventurous story about a girl growing up in Alaska with a bush pilot mom and an adventure guide dad. The eight-part children’s podcast series is a prequel to the PBS KIDS animated series, MOLLY OF DENALI, which debuts on Monday, July 15 on PBS stations, the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel and PBS KIDS digital platforms.
Fun, Adventurous Podcast For Kids
The new MOLLY OF DENALI Podcast is an educational podcast for kids in the sense that it exposes children to a whole new world and way of life. It is sure to capture their imaginations as children get to hear what it is like for Molly to live in Alaska. They will follow her adventures and create images in their heads of flying in a bush plane over a foggy island school of puffins and racing in a dogsled. The series is targeted towards preschool and early elementary school children.
At the center of the MOLLY OF DENALI podcast series for kids is Alaska Native Molly Mabray, whose 10th birthday is quickly approaching. In the podcast, listeners will hear the rollicking story of how Suki (an Alaskan Malamute) charged into Molly’s life and became a part of her family, which all started when Molly’s birthday cake went missing. In the first episode, Molly sets out to solve the case of the missing cake.
The MOLLY OF DENALI series for kids is the first nationally distributed kids’ show in the U.S. to feature a Native American lead. Another cool fact is that all Indigenous characters in the show are voiced by Indigenous actors.
The MOLLY OF DENALI podcast for kids is made by the folks behind some of your all-time favorite PBS KIDS television shows like Arthur, and Curious George. Do you think your kids will enjoy this new action-packed adventure for kids rooted in Native storytelling? You and your kids can check out the audio trailer for the kid’s podcast available here.
“The podcast, like the TV series, emphasizes important Alaska Native values, including respecting others, sharing, and honoring elders, while providing kids with empowering role models,” said Dorothea Gillim, Executive Producer of MOLLY OF DENALI at WGBH Boston.
