Fun Facts and Topics for Kids and Parents to Enjoy
My daughter loves this podcast sooooo much! She says, “Mom, can we listen to Who Smarted? in the car?” Needless to say, this podcast is on heavy rotation as we drive to school. We both like the topics and fun facts that we learn. Keep up the good work!

Best Show Ever!
Hi I’m Amelia in San Diego CA (but I just moved from San Antonio TX). I listen every day on my way to school with my parents and I love to shout out the answers. I learn so much from the show!

Our favorite
I am a mom and I love getting in the car and hearing my kids say “put on Who Smarted?” Our morning drives to school or longer to the shore, these are a great way to start the drive. Not too long, not too short, and always clever (my favorite line, “ I don’t know”). Thanks for an awesome podcast that we all love.

Homeschool Just Got Easier
We started homeschooling just before the pandemic so had a really “jump in the deep end” experience. We couldn’t find any non-screen educational fun stuff to keep the kids occupied until another homeschool family told us about Who Smarted? Now we listen to it not just for breaks and car rides, but to introduce topics that we plan to study. It’s an incredible resource and we are so grateful!

Who Smarted?
We love listening to this podcast. We listen every minute before going to sleep. My daughter loves the intro song, likes how the narrator asks the listener questions and the different topics. Highly recommend!

Thanks for hours of quality Carschooling content!
As homeschoolers we love educational and fun podcasts! This is a great blend of the two and we eagerly await new episodes each week. Our rides to and from activities are full of science, history and laughter in large part thanks you the team behind Who Smarted?

Love it!
I love this podcast sooo much! Last year, my 5th grade teacher played this for us everyday during zoom. When I got Apple Podcasts, I immediately searched this up! I listen whenever I have time and I love all the facts. P.S. To the narrator: Love your narrating!

Who Smarted? rocks!
We listen to Who Smarted? every night at bedtime. We don’t go to bed without listening to an episode. Mom likes it because it’s educational and we love the funny jokes and sound effects. We kids even have a dance for the theme song! Please keep making lots of episodes and make one about cookies! Yum!

Questions from Parents


What does it cost?

We have a free and paid version of the podcast. We want every educator, child, and parent to have access to our resources regardless of income. For those who want ALL the new episodes, plus ad-free listening and bonus content, we offer a very affordable subscription.

Are there ads?

There are ads on the free feed. We make every effort to make sure they are ads you will be interested in for your kid and family. The Who Smarted+ subscription is ad-free.

How did the Who Smarted? platform get started?

We are primarily TV producers who created great educational entertainment like Nat Geo’s BRAIN GAMES and Netflix’s BRAINCHILD. During 2020 we decided it would be great to offer a screen-free educational entertainment experience to kids and parents who were on computers at home all day. That became Who Smarted?

What can I expect from my kid listening to Who Smarted?

If you have a kid who is naturally curious, expect a lot of self-directed learning and research after the episode. For kids who may struggle a bit with science or history, expect them to find a new fun way into topics that may have seemed daunting. And for parents and educators, expect to feel relief that you have finally found a podcast the whole family can enjoy and learn from.

Will my kid get smarter from Who Smarted?

We hear from parents and educators every day who tell us that their kids and students are suddenly interested in learning more about the world around them. We CAN say that Who Smarted? is designed by writers, producers, and educators to ignite, amplify, and satisfy your child’s natural curiosity.
