CALLING ALL KIDS — We want you to be the Brains Trust
03:05 | January 2nd, 2024

Have you always wanted to tell us what you think about a topic? Well, now’s your chance. Over the summer break you can film yourself answering some of our curliest questions.

Matt’s pick: Is Santa Claus a bad person?
25:32 | December 17th, 2023

Imagine if you were being watched every second of the day to make sure you behaved well. And then you got rewarded or punished depending on how you acted? In this episode, we take a long hard look at Santa Claus, because news flash, we are told he’s watching you day and night.

Carl’s pick: Oedipus – The Musical
27:17 | December 17th, 2023

Meet Oedipus. He’s the main character in one of the world’s oldest stories. He lived a long time ago and he did some pretty bad things. But was it his fault or was it fate? Was there anything he could have done to avoid tragedy? Join Molly, Carl and Matt as they sing their way through an ancient tale of terrible misfortune. 

Molly’s pick: Is it ever okay to be a cannibal?
25:18 | December 17th, 2023

Molly, Carl and Matt become lost at sea, they’ve run out of food and they lack basic survival skills. So, would it be okay for them to eat each other if they get really really really hungry? Maybe don’t listen to this episode while you’re eating!

INTRODUCING — new series A World Without …
02:45 | September 12th, 2023

This season we go on a little adventure in our minds. Join Molly, Carl and Matt as we imagine what the world might be like without things like schools and sadness and punishment. Would everything be better without them?

A World Without … Privacy
21:45 | September 12th, 2023

Imagine if something private you told a friend could be shouted out for the whole world to hear? Or if an embarrassing bodily function was shared with everyone? Some people say privacy is only necessary if you have something to hide, but are there other reasons to keep certain things just for yourself?

A World Without … Heartbreak
23:12 | September 12th, 2023

We often feel sadness and heartbreak when something bad happens, like when a much-loved pet dies or someone at school doesn’t want to be friends anymore. Or even when your sports team loses the grand final after you’ve trained really hard for it. Would life be better if you could magically make that sadness disappear?

A World Without … Schools
23:54 | September 12th, 2023

What’s the point of school anyway? That’s a question lots of you have written to us to ask. Nearly every day of the week for years and years and years, you have to get up, put your uniform on and go to a big building full of other children, just so you can learn stuff. And then once you’re in the school building, grownups get to decide when you’re allowed to eat your lunch and when you’re allowed to play. It’s tiring and sometimes boring. So should we just get rid of schools?

Thoughts and reviews on Short & Curly episodes...
If this Episodes in this show have reviews, they'll appear here.

Some brilliant points raised in this. I think really kids just want to emulate the adults they care about and do ‘adult’ looking things.

I know I used to love a small non-alcoholic shandy when I was a kid and we were out for a meal, and pretending to smoke with those candy sticks when it was cold in winter always felt naughty. But I don’t believe anyone that says they drink beer for the taste of it.
