Your daily kids news podcast.

Aussies win big overseas; Dubai’s Iron Men take to the skies; epic dog sled race begins; and a very noisy fish.

Aussie NRL stars made the desert their playground this weekend, getting their rugby league on in Las Vegas. Then there’s  cricket in Wellington and golf in Singapore.  Plus, a desert storm added extra drama! Go, Aussies!

Some folks in Dubai decided walking is too boring and took to the air with jet packs, just like superheroes. Flying past the world’s tallest building must feel just like being in a movie. If only we could jet off to school like that!

Find out about The Iditarod. The ultimate doggy marathon across Alaska’s frosty landscapes. Imagine being pulled by 16 furry athletes across ice and snow. It’s the coolest (literally) race you’ll ever hear about!

A fish so small but as loud as an elephant? Only in Myanmar! This little swimmer might look almost invisible but sounds like it’s ready to start a band. Who knew something so tiny could be so loud?
