Your daily kids news podcast.

Mars mission needs volunteers; Basketball’s Bryce the MVP; a star munching black hole discovered; and the dog that won the lottery. 

Imagine swapping your safe and cosy bedroom for life on a rocky red planet. NASA is looking for four brave souls to do just that. But instead of blasting off to space, they’ll be stepping into a Mars-like shed filled with red dirt, right here on Earth.

In a tale that sounds straight out of a cartoon, a dog in China has turned its nose into a treasure finder, sniffing out not one, but two winning lottery tickets! This furry friend’s sniffing skills have earned its owner some cash and itself a feast of treats.

Bryce Cotton, the basketball wizard whose name is now echoing in Aussie sports halls of fame. Bryce has dribbled his way to his fourth MVP award. In the world of hoops, he’s fast becoming a legend. All hail MVP Bryce and all the other Bryces too!

Astronomers have discovered a black hole that’s munching on stars like they’re snacks. Gobbling up a whole solar system’s worth of stars every day. It’s a space story that sounds like it’s straight out of a sci-fi movie, but it’s all real!
