The Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University has a new podcast all about early development: The Brain Architects. If you're into science and podcasts, it just might be your thing!

The first episode starts at the beginning:

"Why are the early years of a child’s life so important for brain development? How are connections built in the brain, and how can early brain development affect a child’s future health? This episode of The Brain Architects dives into all these questions and more."
