LiSTNR announces Season 2 of BabyLab podcast, hosted by Emma Watkins


LiSTNR’s BabyLab podcast, hosted by Emma Watkins, today launches its second season in a new partnership with the MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development at Western Sydney University and its infant research centre, MARCS BabyLab.

The branded podcast series will see children’s entertainer Watkins break down the questions that parents may have about how babies learn to communicate.

Questions to be explored in BabyLab season two include: where does the first word come from? Are screens good for learning? Does music improve communication skills?

Watkins will speak to both parents and experts, including Dr Genevieve Quek and Professor Jorge Serrador, to learn about the fascinating world of communication and babies.

Professor Sue Hespos, Leader of the MARCS BabyLab at Western Sydney University, says BabyLab podcast is an exciting new initiative that translates world class university research on child development into fun, bite-sized parenting ‘hacks’ for modern mums and dads.

“As one of the leading infant communication and child development research centres in Australia, we are proud to share our latest research and findings with parents and caregivers of young children,” she says.

Host Emma Watkins says “I am absolutely thrilled to be hosting the second season of the BabyLab podcast.”

“Through this podcast I hope to make this research accessible to parents as we embark on a journey to answer the essential questions that inevitably arise from the beautiful, complex, fun and challenging world of raising babies.”

LiSTNR Senior Executive Producer of Branded Podcasts Todd Stevens says “Emma brings so much curiosity and passion to the BabyLab podcast. She has a genuine interest in finding out how babies learn and a knack for simplifying what can be a very complex world.”

Each new episode drops every Wednesday.
