Kid-focused podcasts are a fun way to pass the time during summer travel, and one of my favorite new ones is Treasure Island 2020. Sam Payne, a host at BYUradio and producer of the show, called it a “reimagining” of Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1883 “Treasure Island.”

9to5Mac’s Podcast of the Week is a weekly recommendation of a podcast you should add to your subscription list.

BYUradio has teamed up with Gen-Z Media to produce Treasure Island 2020.

James Hawkins helps his mom run a motel in modern day Montauk, Long Island. But when a mysterious man washes up on the beach with a treasure map tattooed on his chest, James discovers that Billy Bones is, in fact, a time traveling pirate from the 18th century. James and his new friends, Morgan and Max, follow the map right into a magical portal that leads them back nearly three hundred years and back into a swashbuckling adventure.

My family listened to the show on the way to vacation, and my kids were immediately drawn into the story. The production quality is fantastic.
