Yoto, the interactive audio platform for kids and creator of the critically acclaimed and award-winning Yoto Player and Yoto Mini, has announced the launch of APM Studios’ children’s podcasts, which will be available in the Yoto App. The complete collection of children’s podcasts from APM Studios will be available to the entire Yoto community for free, indicating an important step forward for both Yoto and APM Studios in making the content accessible to a wider audience.
In addition to the new APM Studios podcasts, the Yoto App is filled with free audio and features for family life, including over 30 podcasts. The Yoto App gives families the freedom to access and enjoy audio whenever and wherever they like, without the need to use a physical card, and with content updated every month, children and families will always have something new to discover.
“As two brand leaders in the children’s audio space, we’re thrilled to be partnering with APM Studios on the launch of these podcasts,” said Ben Drury, CEO and Co-Founder of Yoto. “Yoto continuously strives to offer children and families inspiring and educational content, and with this new partnership, we’re able to provide our ever-expanding community with access to APM Studios’ thrilling content that ranges from science and financial literacy to historical moments and everything in between.”
“APM Studios has a ten-year track record of being an innovator and leader in kid-native podcast content, which is why we believe Yoto – an innovator in children’s audio – is a great partner for expanding the reach of our growing library,” said Thomas De Napoli, Chief Strategy Officer & Managing Director of Revenue Strategy and Business Development at APM Studios.
Kids and family podcasts from American Public Media and APM Studios will be available in the Yoto app at launch, with the platform highlighting a different show each month throughout 2023. Podcasts include:
