Pineapple Street Studios Invites Kids 'Stuck at Home' to Make Their Own Podcast

PRESS RELEASE — March 19, 2020

New York NY, USA—Pineapple Street Studios today announced Stuck at Home, a creative podcast experiment for kids around the world who find themselves at home in light of recent coronavirus restrictions.

As part of this experiment, kids are encouraged to create their own Stuck at Home podcast featuring the content of their choice, including: news reports on what it’s like where they are, what they are doing to fill the time, and what’s in the fridge; interviews with other kids or adults; reviews of the movie they’re watching and books they’re reading; tips and advice on fun things to do at home; share their favorite stories or invent new ones; play their instruments for a music show; and more.

With their parent or guardian’s permission, kids can record their podcast using a smartphone voice recording app or laptop and send to StuckAtHome@pineapple.fm. Stuck at Home podcast ideas, guidance and information can be found at http://pineapple.fm/stuck-at-home.

“So many of us are home with kids right now, isolated and trying to make sense of this deeply uncertain moment while watching our children process it too. Even after just a few days it seems clear that they have as much to teach us about how to get through this as we do them,” said Jenna Weiss-Berman and Max Linsky, co-founders, Pineapple Street Studios. “But it’s not just about adults. Kids are missing school, missing each other. And we hope this project will be one small way for kids all over the country to connect.”

Stuck at Home will be led by Pineapple Street Studios Senior Producer Eric Mennel, who just wrapped production on The Catch and Kill Podcast with Ronan Farrow.

Pineapple Street Studios will provide participants updates throughout the week on their podcast submissions.
