Top 25+ of the best podcasts for children, to have a little peace

You may have become accustomed to multiple confinements to homeschooling. Containment or not, podcasts can also help us. Because we don’t always have the time, or quite simply because we’re too lazy to read a story to this child that we didn’t even really want (don’t lie), so here’s a list of podcasts for children (and sometimes for parents too) that should save your life.

Podcasts with stories for n children (with an “n” in front)

1. Teeth and sleep – BFM – (For ages 5 to 7)

A short story of 3 minutes. Why 3 minutes? Because that’s the time it takes to get the snags clean. The ideal excuse to ensure quality playful brushing. We love this podcast especially since it was a former topiteur who concocted it, congratulations to you François De La Taille (alias Fanchie).

2. A story and… Oli – France Inter – (For 5 to 7 year olds)

Are you tired of typing the 72 pages of Goldilocks every night? France Inter has thought of you by offering “Une histoire et… Oli”, a podcast in which authors and big names in radio (Guillaume Meurice, Zep, via Chloé Delaume and Katherine Pancoll) read the stories that they wrote to children to put them to sleep. About ten joyful minutes during which you can rest yourself by letting yourself be carried away by these childish universes. Or make you a good big cigarette.

Listen here.

3. The Big Story – Pomme d’Api – (For ages 3 to 6)

Overall, the Pomme d’Api radio should save you from a few nervous breakdowns. It’s not for nothing that they say it’s the favorite radio station for children aged 3 to 6, the whole grid is made to soothe these little beings full of energy who sometimes make us regret having given them birth. . Frankly, even for you it should act on your body like a Xanax.

Listen here.

4. Little Stories – Taleming – (For ages 6 to 10)

And do you want some more stories for children, each of them has a variable duration, some are only one minute long and are very practical for putting your child to sleep in record time (really more recommended by the WHO than the whiskey in the glass of water).

Listen here.

5. Read me a story – RTL – (For 5 to 7 year olds)

Authors are like children, they are confined to their homes. This is therefore an opportunity to offer them great stories of their best vintage.

6. Guillemette – Arte Radio – (For 5 to 7 year olds)

To change a little style, you can find in these 7 episodes a musical fiction of a few minutes and it’s really great. Guillemeeeeeetteuu it’s not going the têeeeeeteu!

7. In the land of monsters – Musée d’Orsay – (For 5 to 10 year olds)

Monsters don’t have to be big, scary bad guys. In this series of stories imagined by Claude Ponti, we discover various stories of monsters that are not even scary. Report on the fact that we have just said that the monsters were not necessarily big bad guys who are scary.

8. Stories in music – Radio Classique – (For ages 5 to 8)

In each episode, Elodie Fondacci tells us stories and embellishes them with a selection of the biggest classical music hits (basically the classical music hit machine). A pleasure for both children and adults.

Listen here.

9. One more story – (For ages 5 to 7)

As the name suggests, this podcast tells stories and it does it very well. These are stories read from children’s books and it should allow you to occasionally skip the traditional story to read before bed.

Listen here.

10. The magic tablet – Bloom – (For ages 7 to 13)

In the series of successful sound fictions, we salute the production of this absolutely brilliant podcast which takes us on a sound series where Sacha, Ethan and Camille (all three in 6th grade) must make an incredible journey through time to find a little girl. stuck in the Middle Ages. A very nice introduction to SF.

Listen here.

11. Sleep Nightlight – Bloom – (For ages 3 to 8)

As its name suggests, this podcast is especially aimed at children about to fall asleep. It’s not so much the story that counts here as the ASMR sounds that should soothe the little one and gently plunge him into Morpheus’ arms (it’s an expression eh, not a weird guy sleeping in your child’s bed) . Personally I listened to an episode, and I slept for 72 hours afterwards.

Listen here.

12. “Asterix and the discord” (Fiction / Theater and Co.) – France Culture – (For all ages)

For the first time, an album by the most famous of the Gauls has been adapted into audio fiction on France Culture and this is the best way to awaken an asterixophile passion in children.

We stay in the world of comics with these four adaptations of the adventures of Tintin in podcasts for comic book lovers who would like to introduce their children to the powder puff in strawberry blond.

14. “Peter Pan or the boy who did not grow up” (Fiction / Theater and Co.) – France Culture – (For all ages)

For the adventurous who can bet on a little longer auditory concentration, the France Culture fiction podcast here takes up the story of Peter Pan, thus addressing the youngest and those nostalgic for Tinker Bell (band of perverts).

Podcasts to cultivate kids (because school has become a distant memory)

15. Curious little ones – (For ages 7 to 12)

To follow up on his cult podcast dad “Things to know”, the same authors have developed this podcast dedicated to general culture for the little ones. Because stories are nice 2 minutes but if the lockdown lasts 17 years, it would be nice to teach them a thing or two at home.

Listen here.

16. Imaginary walks – Musée d’Orsay – (For all ages)

Cultural break for the little ones with this awesome podcast (just as useful for adults) which takes us on a walk through a painting while telling us a little story. Ideal for learning about art when you don’t have a museum to hand.

Listen here.

17. Hey News! – France info & Astrapi – (For ages 7 to 11)

Because information is not just for grown-ups, this podcast tackles the news by addressing the youngest. A good boost to help you address the issue of confinement with confidence.

Listen here.

18. Les p’tits Bateaux – France Inter – (For all ages)

Children kill us with their questions. Fortunately, France Inter involves specialists, scientists or philosophers to provide them with clear answers and silence once and for all the untimely “whys” that send us back to our own existential anxieties. The show is as much for them as it is for you.

Podcasts that use mythology to tell us stories

19. Les odyssées – France Inter – (For all ages) – (For ages 7 to 12)

A fun history lesson for the little ones! In each episode of this podcast, we discuss a great figure in history. Another essential support when you no longer have a teacher, no more school, and no more energy.

We find here again a podcast where children have the floor!

In short, it’s a touching and delicious podcast.

Well yeah we always talk about children, grandchildren… but what do we do with teenagers? Well, there are also podcasts for this age group between 10 and 15 years old. In “My teenage life”, it is the teenagers who have the floor and testify about their lives, the difficulties they go through but also their little joys of everyday life. Very useful to finally understand what is going on in the head of a teenager.

Podcasts that are more aimed at parents (especially when they are at the end of the roll’s)

24. Dirty Kids – Slate

The reference podcast on the relationship that parents have with themselves and on learning to parenthood. We find there Titiou Lecoq and Nadia Daam who have the advantage of knowing what they are talking about since they have children. Please note, the programs were recorded a few years ago but they are still available to listen to and still very topical so go for it.

Listen here.

25. Daron Stories

Fabrice Florent tells twice a month the stories of other fathers between happiness, trouble and difficult learning of a role for which there is no training.

A program entirely devoted to education, national or parental, and puts current political issues into perspective while reflecting on the educational mission. It looks boring like that, but it’s actually not boring at all.

Listen here.

28. My Child Terrible – Arte Radio

A mother, a 2-year-old child, a lot of fatigue and the need to talk about it>. Be careful, this documentary can be used as a contraceptive. We have been warned. But it also takes good to hear about the other galleys of young parents.

Listen here.

29. Have you read it my little wolf? – France Inter

A literary column, yes, but dedicated to children’s books. History not to buy anything for the kid and that he is definitely disgusted with reading because he is offered rotten books.
