PORTLAND, Ore. – Podcasts are a great source of information and entertainment for people of all ages, and one Southeast Portland family is hoping to broaden the options for the younger listeners.

The Wilkinson family loves listening to podcasts, but had trouble finding one suited for them. So they started one on their own called “Cool Facts About Animals.”

It’s hosted by 4-year-old Theo, 6-year-old Clara, and 8-year-old Grady (with help from their mom, Alison).

They've had some high-profile guests on their podcast, including Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer.

Each week they pick a topic to research, and then sit together on the couch to talk about what they've learned.

Nearly 20 thousand people have downloaded their podcast from around the world. You can find it on itunes or through their Facebook page.
