Ooh! You’re in Trouble is a podcast for tweens about the moments of defiance that define us. Each episode features true stories of young people confessing a moment they broke the rules growing up. From the makers of MORTIFIED, the series explores why kids defy rules — what does it reveal about us and what can we learn. KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Kendall B. comments, “Ooh! You’re In Trouble is a great podcast that, not only has a catchy name, but a great host, fun theme, and epic sound effects! Each episode has a new kid, with a different story! I love it because I can listen to other kid’s stories and learn about their experiences with breaking the rules. Eshaan M. adds, “It’s a show that’s funny, educational, entertaining and insightful – perfectly reflective of growing up. The participants in each episode are between the ages of 10 and 25. They engagingly tell their stories, with an intricate plot buildup and super dramatic climax; they surely capture listeners’ attention. Merk Nguyen hosts the podcast (in a minor role) as LV, the “little voice inside your head.” Rosemary K. wraps it up with, “The stories in the podcast Ooh You’re in Trouble are beautifully illustrated and told in a way in which you learn something and it’s also exciting to listen to. I really enjoyed it. At first I thought that this podcast wouldn’t be fun, as it progresses I found myself drawn in. I was learning a lot, and it is hilarious.” See their full reviews below.

Ooh! You’re in Trouble By Eshaan M., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 14

A fun, light podcast perfect for a morning commute, Ooh! You’re in Trouble will entertain listeners of all ages with its fun sound effects and strong storytelling style.

Ooh! You’re in Trouble is a podcast where adults look back at their moments of teen defiance that shaped them. Each episode centers around one misadventure, a true story of a moment a young adult that broke the rules growing up and what they learned from their experience. It’s an interesting answer to the question: why do we act out?

It’s a show that’s funny, educational, entertaining and insightful – perfectly reflective of growing up. The participants in each episode are between the ages of 10 and 25. They engagingly tell their stories, with an intricate plot buildup and super dramatic climax; they surely capture listeners’ attention. Merk Nguyen hosts the podcast (in a minor role) as LV, the “little voice inside your head.” Nguyen’s peppy hosting helps accent each episode, though she doesn’t play as big of a role as a conventional podcast host. Each episode is blended with tons of light, youthful-sounding music and effects (every episode has background music created by a different artist). The crisp editing by Hadley Dion and Aaron Garber makes the 20- to 27-minute episodes fly by! I also love the podcast thumbnails’ art style, and the titles are super fun, too.

The message of Ooh! You’re in Trouble is one of exploration and learning from your past doings; all of the older participants got into sticky situations as tweens or teens and grew from those mistakes. It’s a positive message that’s not pushed too hard, but that makes it perfect for leisure listening without sounding too preachy.

I give Ooh! You’re in Trouble 5 stars out of 5 and recommend it for ages 13 to 18. You can listen to We Got You on TRAX at https://www.trax.fm/ooh-youre-in-trouble

Ooh! You’re In Trouble By Kendall B., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, Age 10

Ooh! You’re In Trouble is a great podcast that, not only has a catchy name, but a great host, fun theme, and epic sound effects! Each episode has a new kid, with a different story! I love it because I can listen to other kid’s stories and learn about their experiences with breaking the rules.

This podcast certainly connects with its listeners, because it talks about things that all kids can relate to, breaking the rules. Each episode features a different kid who did something wrong, whether it’s something as small as making fun of somebody, a situation like stealing some candy, or something very serious, like driving without a license. It also talks about the motivations behind these kids’ actions. The host of the show, LV, is super funny and always takes time to ask the kids listening if the rebel should’ve done what they did, which gives the show a great lesson.

Ooh! You’re In Trouble caught my attention with such a different theme; I’ve seriously never heard of a show like this. It’s different from other podcasts, because they talk about a serious subject, but make it fun with sound effects, funny jokes, and real kids with stories, which makes it interesting and enjoyable. Any parent should have their kid listen to this podcast, because of the valuable lessons that can be learned in every single episode. My favorite part of Ooh, You’re In Trouble is when the host asks the audience if what the kid did was right, because they ask the listeners to think about their opinion about the rule-breaker’s choice and what they would’ve done in the same situation. That gets the listeners involved.

The message of this podcast is that rules are always there for a reason, and you shouldn’t break them. You should know that there is a small bit of crude humor in this podcast, but most parents will not mind their kids hearing it. Most kids would not imitate the behaviors some of these kids talk about, but if your kid is a rebel, you might want to watch out.

I give Ooh! You’re In Trouble an excellent 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 9 to 14, plus parents. You can listen to it on TRAX at https://www.trax.fm/ooh-youre-in-trouble.

Ooh! You’re In Trouble! By Rosemary K., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, Age 12

The stories in the podcast Ooh! You’re in Trouble are beautifully illustrated and told in a way in which you learn something and it’s also exciting to listen to. I really enjoyed it. At first I thought that this podcast wouldn’t be fun, as it progresses I found myself drawn in. I was learning a lot, and it is hilarious.

This podcast is told by adults and teens talking about experiences that they have had breaking or bending the rules when they were younger. The audience is asked questions too and gets to ponder what they would do in a particular situation. The people talk about their experiences, while voicing regret and also lessons that they learned from it.

This podcast is cheesy and dramatic at times, but that contributes to its overall humor and makes it more entertaining and engaging. The recurring actors on the show are always able to bring out a new voice for their character. The sound effects, variation of points of views and the difference in stories all contribute to an amazing show. I love how some of the episodes are very relatable for me, and that I find them all enjoyable regardless. They are a reasonable length and have playful, mischievous music which really sets the fun mood of the podcast. My favorite episode is one following a girl that drives a car before she has her license and all the obstacles she and her friends have to overcome to meet their goal. I find it highly impressive how well thought through some of the peoples’ plans are in this podcast and how determined they are at times to get to their goal. The show is about troublemaking, but sometimes it’s not pointed out that people’s actions are wrong. This is beneficial, because it leaves it up to you to decide if you would do the things that they did in a particular situation, hypothetically. But, it also could be problematic in that it might give kids ideas for getting into trouble. So, when listening to it, keep that in mind. Just because it’s not voiced clearly that the actions are wrong, that doesn’t mean you should do them.

The message of this podcast is that troublemaking isn’t always necessarily “bad,” but it can sometimes get to the point where it ends badly or unsafely and you will probably regret your actions afterwards, but learn something too.

I give Ooh! You’re in Trouble 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to18, plus adults. Ooh, You’re In Trouble is available on TRAX at https://www.trax.fm/ooh-youre-in-trouble
