Podcasts...for Kids?

Nov 28, 2017

Chances are, your children are spending too much time looking at smartphones  these days. Why not give them something...smart to listen to?  Here are a few family friendly podcasts your children will love (and you won't mind hearing, either).

Wow in the World is a podcast and a new way for families to connect, look up and discover the wonders in the world around them.

Today is the National Day of Giving, or Giving Tuesday. The date, which was established in 2012, falls on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.

This year, Delmarva Public Radio is joining forces with the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore (CFES) on an all-local online giving campaign called, “THE SHORE GIVES MORE”.

The campaign is an opportunity to localize your Giving Tuesday donation by gathering all of your favorite Delmarva nonprofit organizations on one online giving platform, www.shoregivesmore.org.
