My daughter is starting kinder this year, is it to soon to get her a cell phone?

I’m on a road trip and looking for some kid friendly podcasts, preferably for kids ages 6-10. So far we’ve tried Tumble, which is a cute science one, and The Unexplainable Disappearance of Mars Patel (which my kids liked but I think is more geared towards like ages 10-12). Looking for anything science related, comedy, storytelling, or mystery.
