Why we Need KidsPod Now!
Updated: Oct 6, 2022
Podcasts have taken the world by storm! Nearly 60% of people over the age of 12 listen to podcasts with that number steadily increasing over the past 8 years. It comes as no surprise that the upward trend in podcast listenership has trickled down to children who are likely exposed to the medium through their parents. With a 20% increase in podcast listenership among kids and family category since 2019, the need for KidsPod has never been greater.
One in four children listen to podcasts which will continue to grow. However, one of the biggest barriers to an even greater increase in listenership among kids is accessibility and discoverability. Where do kids go to find podcasts? Currently the only options are expensive premium options or adult focused apps that make it challenging to discover children’s podcasts.
We need KidsPod
We need KidsPod, an app made for children to discover and access the exciting world of children’s podcasts. KidsPod is being created with features tailored to children and their unique listening needs. We have included features such as ease of playlist development, simplifying favorites list, suggesting additional shows based on listening habits, listening notes accessibility, and read or color along mode. And all of the above will be housed in an easy-to-use app with a bright and engaging design to encourage kids to listen and learn.
