Just the other day, I was talking about podcasts for kids, and noting that there wasn't enough different kinds of podcasts aimed at the pre-teen and below crowd. A fair number of (really good) science podcasts, but stuff for younger crowds? More comedic and fictional in nature? Not so much.
As it turns out, kids musician Todd McHatton, who already has a ton of side projects, is adding one more project to his list, one I'm pretty excited about, not to mention explore some of the less-traveled areas of the podcast, er, space. It's called "The Imaginary Accomplishments Podcast," and I think this image from Todd sums it all up... sort of.
OK. Maybe it doesn't explain a lot.
So what is it really? McHatton says that heroes above (that's monsters like Finch, Larry, and Marvy, in addition to Todd himself) will "explore the stories and accomplishments of random champions throughout the galaxy." There will be news coverage and imaginary ad breaks, original music and humor. He promises an "all ages, family friendly mix of The Muppets, Cheech & Chong, Monty Python, and 70s rock and roll cartoon shows."
McHatton says he's already got six episodes ready to go, so when the podcast officially launches later this month, you'll have a lot to look forward to. (I know I am.)
