Parents and carers are waving bye bye to bedtime battles thanks to a curated collection of kids podcasts from LiSTNR.

The podcasts are aimed at educating, storytelling, music sharing and establishing a bedtime routine that’s calm and happy, resulting in a collective sigh of relief from weary adults across the country! 

In a first for LiSTNR, the list includes Kinderling Radio (kids, party and sleep), which complements LiSTNR’s podcast content. What’s so special about that? It means parents can relax knowing that the content on the three radio platforms has been carefully selected specifically for kids.


Bedtime Explorers

Leading the sleep list is the new season of the beloved children’s meditation podcast, ‘Magical Bodies’ which helps children escape their busy minds and focus on winding down their tired bodies at the end of the day. They learn how to relax, let go and appreciate all they have as they settle to sleep. This award-winning meditation podcast has settled little ones to sleep over 24 million times….and counting.”
