CitySpace's two-day podcast festival for kids returns April 20-21 with performances presented by WBUR and friends!

Whether your child wants to understand how to tell what's true from what's false, learn about important people in history, discover how plants and animals adapt to Spring, hear stories from Ancient Greece and folktales from around the world or laugh at sketch comedy, we have it all with live performances from "The Big Fib," "The Past and the Curious," "Greeking Out," Circle Round, "But Why" and "Story Pirates."

Saturday, April 20
10:00 a.m. | "The Big Fib"

In the era of fake news, kids need to learn to be able to tell what’s true from what’s false. And what better way to do that than a game show that puts kids in the driver’s seat, adults on the hot seat, and a sound-effects robot strapped to the roof? During the game, you'll meet two people who claim to be experts in a particular topic, but one of them is actually…a BIG FIBBER! Join host Deborah Goldstein and silly sound effects robot L.I.S.A. (aka Live In-Studio Audience robot) as a human child contestant asks insightful questions, weighs the evidence presented and helps us identify our BIG FIBBER!

Don’t let anyone tell you History can’t be fun. "The Past And The Curious" host Mick Sullivan loves to get excited about people and places of the past - and he loves to share that excitement with others. From big developments to tiny little footnotes, there’s always a great story hiding somewhere. Through a few of these stories, plenty of laughs and a few songs, Mick’s performance will highlight some of the most interesting and amazing animals history has ever seen.
