18 Great Educational Podcasts for Kids

I fell in love with podcasts last year, a little behind the times. I found business podcasts and homeschool podcasts and just for fun podcasts. I've got a whole list of subscribed favorites, and I'm always on the lookout for new ones.

But in my early stages of podcast love, I didn't realize that there was a whole other reason to listen to podcasts. There are some great educational podcasts for kids. Have kids interested in history? Science? Good Stories? Add some of these educational podcasts to your homeschool.
