The Beanies Group launches new podcast on Kinderling Kids Radio

The Beanies Group – creators of The Beanies podcast – has launched a new podcast on Kinderling Kids Radio.

Known as ‘Imagination Station’, the podcast will aim to answer basic questions children ask, as well as combine educational stories, games and songs in one podcast.

Kinderling Kids Radio will be the new home of The Beanies Group

However, the launch of the podcast on Kinderling Kids Radio sees the end of the group’s relationship with Mamamia. Earlier this year, the group launched podcast ‘The Beanies’ through Mamamia’s podcast network.

Miriam Rizvi, co-founder of The Beanies – who goes by the stage name of Mim Beanie – said the move was based on the different audiences.

“We have found a new home at Kinderling Kids Radio where there is a focus on entertaining little ears. Their audience is much more suited to The Beanies and what we are all about – entertaining kids!

“We would like to thank Mamamia for launching the first season and getting us off to a great start. We are very excited to be working in partnership with Kinderling where we have found a natural fit and a whole host of people who want to help develop and nurture The Beanies,” she told Mumbrella.

Season one of The Beanies is no longer running on any network, however Rizvi said it should become available soon.

Meanwhile the new podcast – which has ten episodes and features the same ‘Beanies’ – Rizvi with Laura Dawson and Michael Yore – will follow the same structure as the original podcast.

“In Imagination Station we will be tackling a whole heap of new topics and questions like “What is electricity?”, “Where do sneezes come from?” and “How to be brave on your first day of school,” she said.

Kinderling Kids Radio managing director Lorna Clarkson said The Beanies have a natural home at Southern Cross Austereo owned Kinderling.

“The three of them still have a way of looking at the world with child-like wonder, combined with a cheeky sense of humour,” said Clarkson.

“And just like Kinderling, they understand parents are also listening, so they make sure their episodes are filled with in-jokes and quips to keep it interesting for them, too.”
