Little Voices, Big Ideas podcast, on New Orleans Public Radio, explores the rich and often surprising content of children’s books—and ways to have meaningful conversations about big ideas in little books with the children in our lives. Hosted by Sarah DeBacher with contributions from humanities professors: Dr. Helen Taylor, Dr. Thomas Wartenberg (PLATO Board Member), and Dr. Freddi Evans, each episode offers historical, philosophical, and cultural connections, as well as practical advice for parents that will help listeners go beyond the bedtime story.
