Wow in the World logo

Launched in May 2017, Wow in the World is a podcast for curious kids and their grown-ups that leads listeners on a journey away from their screens, inside their brain, out into space, and deep into the coolest new stories in science, technology, and innovation. Distributed by NPR, Wow in the World marks the first show for kids in the public broadcaster’s 47-year history and was one of the most downloaded Podcasts of 2017.

The Pop Ups

A collaboration between Brooklyn musicians Jason Rabinowitz and Jacob Stein, The Pop Ups have been setting the standard for children’s music since 2010.  Their most recent album, Giants of Science, won their third GRAMMY Nomination for Best Children’s Album, a Parent’s Choice Gold Award, and had two #1 singles on Sirius XM Radio.  “Time,” the second single, was debuted by Billboard.  They are currently developing a new kids TV show with Amazon Studios, and are the musical partners with NPR’s first podcast for kids, Wow in the World with Guy Raz and Mindy Thomas.  The Pop Ups continue to tour nationally, have headlined the kids stages at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, SSX, and with Yo Gabba Gabba Live.  Their albums have won National Parenting Publications Award, Parents’ Choice Awards and praise from NPR’s All Things Considered, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and USA Today among others.  You can catch their exclusive Amazon Video Special, “The Great Pretenders Club” and accompanying album on Amazon Prime.
