What If World

a story podcast for kids


What If World is a storytelling podcast for kids. Each week, Mr. Eric takes a "what if?" question from a friend and spins it into a story just for you!

114. What if rhinocerouses took over Egypt?

Let’s learn of Cleocatra’s mysterious past! The young cat is destined to become queen of Ygypt, but the Rhino people are sick of being ruled by cats and lions. Can they learn to live together?

Lessons include: Being nice is more than just behaving politely, you have to actually think about other people’s feelings; there is no way we can prepare for every possible emergency, sometimes you have to stay calm and think on your feet.

See Mr. Eric at SXSW! What If World will be teaming up with Brains On!, Ear Snacks, and Wow in the World to share some knowledge. Our panel is called Kids Listen: The Craft of Podcasting for Kids, and if you or anyone you know will be in the Austin area on March 10th, we’d love to see you there!
