20: Tumble Season 4 Favorites with The Show About Science!

We’re taking a listen back to some of our favorite moments from Season 4 of Tumble, with help from our friend Nate! Nate is the 9 year old host of fellow kids science podcast, “The Show About Science.” Nate interviews Lindsay and Marshall about the stories behind the science.

This episode features clips from Rob Dunn (“Discover the Wildlife of Your Home”), Anne Hilborn (“The Secret to Cheetahs’ Super Speed”), Erika Rader (“What Would Earth Be Like If Volcanoes Didn’t Exist?”), and Robyn Grant (“The Science of Whiskers”).

#81: Anxiety and Depression in Kids (with guest Erica Komisar)

As a parent, anxiety, depression, and ADHD are all things with which you worry your kids are struggling. Since anxiety disorders affect one in eight children, it’s important to know what to look for and how to help. In this episode, Dr. Meg talks with Erica Komisar, a psychoanalyst, parent coach, and author, and her main goal is to relieve pain from individuals that suffer from a multitude of issues including anxiety and depression. On her website, Erica says her main goal is to “teach parents how to raise emotionally healthy children by being as present emotionally and physically as possible from infancy through adolescence,” and in her talk with Dr. Meeker, she gives a lot of practical information on how to recognize and help your kids with these issues. Also in this episode, Dr. Meg gives you her points to ponder that you can start using right away!
