Music Minute: Ear Snacks - Songs from the Podcast

Ear Snacks is a fun podcast for kids hosted by Andrew and Polly, award-winning music makers. The first season has over seven hours of content, with interviews of nearly 100 kids and adult-friendly experts. In addition, the song has fun cross-genre original songs from Andrew & Polly. Now they've collected them on an album that I got to review, Ear Snacks: Songs from the Podcast.

There's a fun variety of songs on the album - some thoughtful and reflect, some silly and crazy, some that will get caught in your head, and some that are fun musical surprise. It's a great album for kids who still need to listen to kid-friendly music, but want to listen to something that doesn't sound like it's written just for kids. Even if you don't check out the album, the podcast is definitely worth listening to for kids!

"Every episode of Ear Snacks," says Polly Hall, "is about some small thing -- just some unassuming something, but then, of course, it's about something bigger, too."

Andrew & Polly started making music together as college undergraduates and, by now, have become a fixture on the L.A. music scene, in high demand for their sparkling music for films, TV, and commercials, with "grownup" music credits too numerous to mention, including a 2015 Emmy nomination for Polly Hall. On the kid side of things, their production credits include dope jams like "Grapes" and songs for Sesame Studios and Nickelodeon's Wallykazam! as well as the score to the Nick digital series Welcome to the Wayne. Their music regularly charts on SiriusXM's Kids Place Live, and their podcast, Ear Snacks, broadcasts monthly on the same channel. The two co-founded and serve on the board of Kids Listen, a new group advocating for quality audio programming for kids.

Ear Snacks: Songs from the Podcast will be available at CDBaby, Amazon, at Andrew & Polly's website - - and at their shows.
