The Radio Adventures of Eleanor Amplified

Launched in 2016, the podcast The Radio Adventures of Eleanor Amplified describes itself as "an adventure series for the whole family." This audio drama centers around its main character, a "world-famous" radio reporter named Eleanor Amplified, who "foils devious plots and outwits crafty villains, all in pursuit of the big story." Eleanor Amplified was created by NPR's John Sheehan, a former producer for Fresh Air, who said that in creating this podcast he wanted "to make kids' content that adults could also enjoy." This old-school radio drama is both fun and educational, and its episodes are typically 10-15 minutes long. The podcast has also published two Road Trip Editions that consolidate an entire season into a single-chaptered download, perfect for those long drives. Written primarily for kids aged 8-12, but delightful at any age,Eleanor Amplified is produced by the Philadelphia public radio station WHYY and has been featured on Amy Poehler's Smart Girls.
