Curious Conversations: A Podcast for Kids by Kids

Emma and Xavier are 11 year old twins who wanted to create a podcast for kids, by kids. They thought podcasting would give them the chance to explore their interests in a different way. On Curious Conversations Emma and Xavier are excited to have conversations with adults and kids from all walks of life to learn about their passions and what inspires them.What qualifies them to host a podcast? Well first, Emma and Xavier love to ask questions! They also have over a decade of experience being kids and having a point of view on many topics. Emma and Xavier hope you will join them on their journey. They know it will be interesting because hearing people’s stories and passions is never boring, and they know it will be fun because they are going to work hard to make it that way.
