Kids are experts. Some are experts on dinosaurs, others on making mud castles. Wherever their curiosity may lead them, our mics are on and we’re ready to hear all about it.   

Set within a fun ‘80s-style radio studio, Experts Radio Lab is a drop-in, pop-up kids show where children are interviewed on anything they consider themselves an “expert” on (or anything they’re just really interested in talking about!)  

Happening live in front of a casual audience of family members, friends and visitors, children will be interviewed by theatre actor Alice Mary Cooper and Geraldine Heaney, promising a fun and interactive way for kids to explore their curiosity and share their wild imaginations and observations.
