Kids are known for their wild imaginations. The PBS Kids Writers Contest lets kids in grades K-3 explore their big ideas. Today, we hear from the winners and visit with two of the main organizers of the contest, Prairie Public's Christine McClellan and Kirsten Ness.

Ari Shapiro - The Mole

You know him from radio, but now NPR's Ari Shapiro is moving to the screen. The All Things Considered host has a side gig hosting the new season of The Mole. Twelve contestants traveled to Malaysia to compete for a cash prize. One was planted by the show to ruin the group's chances, leaving the rest to figure out who's the mole. He spoke with Ashley Thornberg about the high-stakes game of sabotage, now showing on Netflix.
