Circle Round with Us

This article is more than 5 years old.

Desperately seeking great entertainment for your 4-11 year old that doesn’t involve staring at a screen? Introducing Circle Round.

We know that sometimes you’re looking for the powerful storytelling you love from WBUR and NPR, but in way you can enjoy with the whole family. That’s why WBUR is introducing our very first kids podcast. And our top-notch producing team behind “Modern Love: The Podcast" has recruited some of the most talented actors in the business to bring the podcast alive. Each episode features a folktale updated for today with interesting sound effects and voices from actors like Jason Alexander (Seinfeld); Katheryn Hahn (Transparent) and Lou Diamond Phillips (“La Bamba”).

So come Circle Round with us  — you’ll meet Stella, a new mother of 100 children, who must outsmart a fierce dragon in order to feed her family. And two brothers who learn why it’s never wise to take more than you need. Plus many more unforgettable characters and stories each week. New episodes drop every Tuesday at 3 p.m. And our illustrator Sabina Hahn has designed a coloring page for kids that you can print off for an activity with each listen.
