A podcast app makes it easy to find podcasts that your kids can listen to. And it's not that these podcasts are boring, they'll also pique your interest as an adult.

Leela Kids, available as an iOS and Android app, targets children ages 3-18. You can browse the podcasts by age group and category. Current categories include bedtime stories, stories, music, animals, dinosaurs, space, TED, and even Harry Potter.

When you open a certain category, you can see all the episodes or podcasts that are listed in that category. Be sure to select the age range first and then the category when searching for podcasts.
