But Why is a show led by kids. They ask the questions and we find the answers. It’s a big interesting world out there. On But Why, we tackle topics large and small, about nature, words, even the end of the world. Know a kid with a question? Record it with a smartphone. Be sure to include your kid's first name, age, and town and send the recording to!

Customer Reviews

Great discussion starter!

Our family is really enjoying this podcast. We listen with our kids; it’s great to see them get slowly sucked in by the stories, sound effects, and clear explanations. The topics have instigated great conversations over dinner or in the car. If you have “curious kids” this is a must-listen podcast!

A kids podcast that adults can enjoy, too!

Finally, a podcast for kids that’s educational and interesting and fun for kids, but won’t make parents want to jump out the window of their moving vehicle! Vermont Public Radio host Jane Lindholm applies her mad interviewing skills to answer questions curious kids are always asking, like how bears sleep all winter, or why invented words? The answers are explored in a way kids can understand, without talking down to them. Can’t wait until my kids are old enough to enjoy this podcast, but until then I’ll be a faithful listener!

Tailored to kids!

Vermont Public Radio has done a great job designing a podcast for younger audiences. Our seven year old is already hooked!
