The Fact Detectives

Two curious kids on a mission to find out all the cool facts about EVERYTHING! Weekdays at 7am and Weekends at 1pm

Meet The Fact Detectives - two curious kids on a mission to find out all the cool facts about EVERYTHING!  

Join Anika and Dexter as they take their BIG questions to some very smart grown-ups who know lots of interesting facts about lots of interesting stuff.   

Like, are there really killer butterflies? Why do we fart? Did monster kangaroos once roam the land? What IS a fossil? And what happens when we flush the toilet?   

If you love finding out fun facts about cool stuff, then tune in weekdays at 7am or weekends at 1pm on Kinderling Kids Radio; listen anytime, anywhere on the Kinderling app; or subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.
