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!

128. What if villagers got treasures when they made mistakes?

Zizi and Zach are back! This time, they’re trying to find a place to test out their magical powers. Where better than the Village of Mistake? Wait, I meant where worse? Gosh, we may be making more mistakes than usual this week...

Lessons include: It’s important to make mistakes so that you can learn from them; there are some things that aren’t safe to practice without professional adult supervision.

64. What if pictures that you’ve taken in the past turned into movies when you looked at them? (Rerun)

It’s Movietines Day and Alabaster Zero didn’t get a single card from his friends, not that the hard-nosed cop wanted mushy cards... At any rate, he’s determined to solve the mystery of the missing cards with his partner Fair Elise. Can you figure out the twist?

Lessons include: you should tell your friends and family how you feel about them, and maybe show them with a nice gesture now and then!

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!

102. What if I was a unicorn and I could give stuff from my horn and Fred the Dog could find my fairy garden?

Fred has to figure out the secret to making a dog house fly, or else he’ll be late to his own inauguration! Fortunately a shapeshifting Finn Again and a generous Miracorn are there to help.

Lessons include: It’s important to think hard when making big decisions (and to not let the small decisions slow you down).

What If World will have a LIVE show and workshop at the DTLA Mini Maker Faire, Saturday, December 1, 2018 at 10 AM – 4 PM at the Los Angeles Central Library. It’s a free event but there is limited space in the storytelling workshops, which will start shortly after the event begins, and end at about noon.
