This podcast was founded by Jaansi and Sunay Patel. We were 12 years old and 6 years old, respectively, when we began this nonprofit initiative 3 years ago! We are passionate about all things science, medicine, and technology. Our inspiration was when we were trying to explore content in these fields but many resources that were not accessible for kids or beginners at any age, for that matter. Thus, LearnOn was born, and our mission is to break down the technical jargon our interests in so that education is more accessible. We are committed to delivering quality content about new discoveries and issues in the STEM world, as well as possible solutions. It is 100% kid friendly, making it perfect to listen to as a family, but anyone is welcome to join us!
We are currently on the 5th season of our podcast! This one is all about digital health, and we are joined by high-profile guests including executive leaders of large companies, founders of technology startups, renowned physicians, and trailblazers in fields including neuroscience, psychology, and medical technology. Our goal is to spotlight the importance of technology in medicine and the future of digital health while breaking down myths that have proliferated due to the rise of artificial intelligence. Previous seasons have covered topics including mindfulness, different aspects of the mind-body connection, and the newest scientific discoveries.
With 55 episodes and counting, we are incredibly grateful to have found so many like-minded people. So far, our podcast has been streamed by over 15,000 listeners across 95 countries and 6 continents. We have also connected with many organizations through Instagram. Most recently, we were very excited to be named in Feedspot’s list of top 10 science podcasts for kids!
