Listen to Brains On every weekday at 3 p.m. CT on Rock the Cradle


Brains On!

Starting Sept. 6, 2016, you can hear Brains On on Rock the Cradle every weekday at 3 p.m. CT! Brains On is a science podcast for curious kids and adults from MPR News and KPCC. Co-hosted each week by kid scientists and reporters from public radio, we ask questions ranging from the science behind sneezing to how to translate the purr of cats, and go wherever the answers take us.

Hear a kids book every night at 7 p.m.


Story time

It's Story Time on Rock the Cradle! Every night at seven, hosts from The Current, local artists, and authors read stories before bed. Grab a blanket and pillow, and let's curl up and read some stories.
