About Extra Scoops

Extra Scoops is a current-events based podcast for grade schoolers who want to learn about interesting people, places, and ideas. We help kids understand all the cool stuff that's happening in the world, and what it means to them. Host Andy Rosen is a journalist who has covered technology, breaking news, business and government at publications including The Boston Globe and The Baltimore Sun. The show is designed to familiarize kids with news reporting, but each episode deals with evergreen topics that kids can listen to anytime.
