This Week, Podikins Presents. . .

Sound Sleuth!

The world can get pretty loud...once you start listening close, that is.  

On this episode, James and Andrew are paid a visit by a very special guest, Waxless Charlie, S.I.  What does an S.I. do?  Well, you'll have to listen to find out!

But listen closely, because there's a strange collection of sounds on Waxless Charlie's mystery tape. How many can you recognize? Can you guess them all? 

(Also, how does Andrew know what an Iberian frog sounds like?)

Interactive Introductions!

Just as James and Andrew were introduced by someone else in episode 001, we're asking our listeners to introduce us to someone they know!

Kids can introduce other kids, kids can introduce grown-ups, and grown-ups can introduce kids. 

Be as creative as you'd like with these introductions. If you're not sure where to start, here's a few questions you can try: 

  • What's the name of the person you're introducing?  
  • How do you know them?
  • What do they do all day?
  • What's surprising about them?
  • Why are they special?

If you want yo share your introduction you can send a voice memo to:


We're hoping to feature your introductions on an upcoming episode.
