Play, Learn & Create with Edx Education

Play, Learn & create with Edx Education. This podcast series discusses play being creative and learning for all children. Join Heather Welch sharing knowledge, information and support on play based learning we will explore the benefits, value, different stages of play and so much more. Play to the untrained eye can look meaningless, however there is a lot more going on than you can see. When children are playing, they are engaged, their imagination is sparked and they are developing confidence and key foundation skills. Play is the way children learn about the world and themselves especially in the early years. We have spoken with many educational experts, founders of charities, award winning author, international presenters, expat parents and so many more. #learningthroughplay #handsonlearning #parents #teachers #family #educationforall

    Crime Junkie

    If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?


    It’s a lighthearted nightmare in here, weirdos! Morbid is a true crime, creepy history and all things spooky podcast hosted by an autopsy technician and a hairstylist. Join us for a heavy dose of research with a dash of comedy thrown in for flavor.
