Felicity Capon: “It’s been great fun putting it together.”

The Week Junior Show is created for curious 8–14 year-olds and their families. Each week, Fun Kids presenter, Bex Lindsay, will be joined by members of The Week Junior’s editorial team to discuss some of the week’s most interesting stories, debate a hot topic and discover whether one incredible story is real or rubbish.

Anna Bassi, editor-in-chief of The Week Junior said: “Although podcasts are growing in popularity there still aren’t many that are created especially for families, so we decided to make The Week Junior Show to help fill that gap. I hope listeners will enjoy hearing the team talk about the week’s news and that they’ll find its unique and engaging blend of content just as interesting, entertaining and accessible as the magazine.”

Felicity Capon, editor of The Week Junior said: “I’m delighted that The Week Junior is launching its very own podcast. It’s been great fun putting it together, and I hope it will give existing readers a closer relationship with the people who make the magazine each week, as well as reaching a brand new audience.”

The podcast is part of Fun Kids new children’s podcast network which brings together all Fun Kids podcasts alongside shows from other providers.

A new episode of The Week Junior Show will be released every Friday.
