Critic reviews

"Eleanor is the perfect hero for our time. She's fought a nefarious internet mega-company on its way to taking over the earth and beyond, and now she's helping her 7th grade protégé stand up to cliques and uncover a middle school mystery. Eleanor is a fearless investigative radio reporter who solves mysteries, unmasks villains, and foils their schemes. Make sure to check out the Eleanor Amplified podcast, if you haven't already. Tune in for the adventure and the fantastic cast and sound design. Stay to hear the Fresh Air team voicing the crowd scenes." (Terry Gross, Fresh Air with Terry Gross)
