Why do stars twinkle? Why are we ticklish? Why exactly don’t cats wear shoes? 

For about a year, The Conversation has been collecting questions like these from kids and publishing answers from experts in a series of articles called Curious Kids.

Now, Curious Kids has teamed up with ABC KIDS listen to produce Imagine This, a new podcast that tackles questions from inquisitive young minds. 

Each episode delves into a puzzling question as host Brianna Peterson chats to kids and Australia’s leading academics  to explore the science of the world around us.

Manager of ABC KIDS listen, Stephanie Carrick told The Conversation, “ABC KIDS listen is focused on creating content for young children to learn about the world around them.”

“I immediately saw the potential in re-imagining The Conversation’s articles as an audio series that speaks directly to children, filling them with wonder about science and nature. Our host, Brianna took that brief and amazed us all by creating a magical and playful narrative journey for children with beautiful sound design.”

Imagine This is available now on the ABC KIDS listen app, Apple Podcasts.
