“We always start from a place of fun and amusement,” said Davis. “If you’re laughing, you’re listening.  And if you’re listening, you’re learning.  And we don’t just consider the kids, we know it’s the parents/adults who put the podcasts on, so we always try to make something a family can enjoy together!”

“We are thrilled to announce the launch of Mysteries About True Histories,” added Jed Baker, CEO and founder of Starglow Media “A show we’re certain will resonate with curious kids and parents seeking to enhance their child’s learning outside of the classroom – while entertaining without a screen.”
