Award-Winning Kids & Family Audio Entertainment Company, Pinna, Announces Wide Distribution of Podcasts for the First Time


June 25, 2024

NEW YORK, June 25, 2024 – Just in time for summer break, Pinna, the leader in kids & family audio entertainment, is releasing some of its most popular shows for free everywhere that podcasts are available. This move expands access to Pinna’s beloved content, bringing fan favorite series to new audiences and demonstrating Pinna’s commitment to activating kids imagination with high-quality, accessible audio series.

Kids can enjoy a summer filled with laughter, mysteries, and fantastical journeys with Pinna’s all-star podcast lineup:

Buckle up for Don’t Break the Rules, the hilarious improv comedy game show where four voice actors transform into brand new characters (based on prompts written by kids!) every single episode. Hosted by the fantastic Carly Ciarrocchi, this Parent’s Choice Recommended Award Winner is guaranteed to have kids in stitches and grown-ups amazed by the on-the-spot vocal performances.

For the junior detectives in our midst, there’s Opal Watson: Private Eye! This Parent’s Choice Gold Winner is soon to be a major book series with the first two titles already in development at HarperCollins. But first, experience the popular show in audio! Join the curious and persistent 11-year-old Opal, as she runs her own thriving mystery-solving business. From lost pets to missing packages, no case is too small (or too big). This season, she tackles her most challenging mystery yet, uncovering buried clues and confronting a family secret along the way.

No summer podcast playlist is complete without a trip to the land of “once upon a time”. Grimm, Grimmer, Grimmest, co-created with bestselling author Adam Gidwitz, takes classic fairytales and gives them a surprising twist. This Webby Award Nominee, Parents Choice Gold Winner, and two-time Kidscreen Best Podcast Winner brings these timeless stories to life with the help of a group of inquisitive kids who chime in with their own questions, jokes, and unique perspectives.

And for the youngest listeners, grab your backpacks and join Alfie and his babysitter, Quentin, in Quentin and Alfie’s ABC Adventures! Each day, this dynamic duo takes a sidewalk journey to a fantastical new destination in the neighborhood, exploring letter sounds, singing catchy songs, and making new friends along the way. Parents’ Choice Foundation Gold Award Winner, this fun adventure podcast introduces kids aged 3-5 to the alphabet, teaching them phonological awareness, a critical reading skill.

In July 2023, Realm expanded into the kids and family audio space with the acquisition of Pinna. They’ve since partnered with established creators such as Story Pirates, Rebel Girls, and GoKidGo to further monetize and grow the brands while distributing high-quality, imaginative content to children worldwide. Realm also produces Popcorn Brainstorm, a bespoke companion podcast for Netflix’s kids’ content. Reaching millions of families every month on the go and at home, Pinna serves the sky-rocketing demand for immersive screen-free entertainment.

“When kids and families listen to great audio stories it promotes early literacy, develops social emotional skills and sparks imagination,” said Molly Barton, CEO and Co-Founder of Realm. “It’s also just a whole lot of fun & a great way to make time in the car and the kitchen more engaging. We’re thrilled to welcome in new listeners this summer by releasing Pinna’s fan-favorite shows for free everywhere that podcasts are available.”
