Our Editor's Take

Greeking Out from National Geographic Kids features fun Greek mythology tales. Families can enjoy listening to tales of heroes and monsters. Each episode is an adventure filled with Greek gods, sea creatures, and flaming chariots.

This podcast is a creative blend of mythology and technology. Host Kenny Curtis delivers mythical stories retold with humor. His style is perfect for families. His digital assistant is called the Oracle of WiFi. She helps drive the narrative with factual content. Oracle is there to provide fast facts and information to help kids learn these myths.

The audience can set sail with Jason and the Argonauts. Or they can explore the Trojan War and that famous wooden horse. Other episodes focus on Zeus the mighty and his strong son Heracles. These stories' earliest known versions date back over 2,700 years ago. Now, kids can relive these incredible adventures. The program started in 2019. It is a companion podcast to the popular Zeus the Mighty children's book series.

Kenny Curtis delivers each story with the warmth and energy that kids will like. Parents will find the episodes entertaining as well. He has more than 25 years of experience in children's broadcasting. His expertise is evident in his trademark characterizations and delivery of stories. The award-winning radio voice has worked for both SiriusXM and broadcast radio.

These days, Curtis focuses on bringing kids an exciting yet informative podcast series. Almost every episode explores a pivotal moment in ancient Greek mythology. But a few episodes have gone down the Nile River and told Egyptian fables. The show remains fun and engaging throughout. Listeners get to escape a hungry cyclops or drive the sun across the sky. The show features whimsical stories of giants, monsters, and fire. It's all a part of Greeking Out from National Geographic Kids.
