LeVar Burton’s new podcast, Sound Detectives, is designed for young ears and co-created with Julia Smith and Joanna Sokolowski. The story revolves around missing sounds worldwide, blamed on the crafty Sound Swindler. Detective Hunch and his sidekick Audie the Ear take kids on a globe-trotting journey to solve these mysteries while introducing them to different cultures.
But Sound Detectives isn’t just entertaining; it’s educational. It aims to stimulate children’s listening skills in a world focused on visuals. Inspired by Burton’s love for radio as a kid, the podcast taps into imagination, away from screens. It’s a mix of humor, suspense, and learning that keeps kids engaged.
Sound Detectives is a kids & family podcast by Stitcher Studios / LeVar Burton Entertainment.
