  • Outstanding Sound Editing – Weird But True!

All of the Xploration Station shows are produced and distributed by Steve Rotfeld Productions. Weird But True! is produced in partnership with National Geographic Kids, and the series is an extension of their popular books brand.  These eight nominations join Xploration Station’s twelve previous nominations, totaling 20 nominations for the critically acclaimed E/I block since its inception in 2015.
