Jamming on the Job
Jamming on the Job is a multi-generational, music-inspired podcast for kids ages 4-8 and their parents and caregivers, starring Christina Sanabria and Andrés Salguero, the Latin Grammy Award-winning kids’ music duo known as 123 Andrés, and Grammy-nominated musician Pierce Freelon as BoomBox. Join them as they tour the country and perform songs about the world of work. Each place they go, they meet a grownup with a different kind of job who helps them along their way. As they learn about the new and inspiring career of the day and the skills needed for that job, they compose an original song about it.
In addition to exposing kids to a wide variety of career paths, each episode will highlight foundational skills relevant to each job, such as empathy, social problem-solving, and responsibility, as well as flexible thinking, impulse control, and persistence.
Produced by PBS NC for PBS KIDS.
