Episode #93 – Alphabet Rockers

Episode #93 – Alphabet Rockers

I got a chance to not only talk to Tommy and Kaitlyn about their awesome new album ‘Rise, Shine, #Woke’, but I got to see them perform live at an Elementary School in South San Francisco.  I got to see, firsthand, the impact that they have on students with their message of change.  It was an incredibly moving experience.  My time with the Alphabet Rockers coincided with the news about the current administration working to end DACA.  It was clear that so many of the students that were at the Alphabet Rockers program were fearful about what they were hearing from the government.  I got to speak to a few students and a teacher about the mood in the classrooms, and I was relieved to hear that there was a general attitude of positivity.  The teachers at the school were so dedicated and engaged, and it was noted by Kaitlyn, Tommy, and me.  Thanks to the educators in lower income areas who are making their students education positive and joyful during what is a difficult time.

Wendy and DB make great music for kids and families to enjoy together.  They pride themselves on their live performances and for making songs with a message.  From their website:  “On their newest album “HomeEarth”, Wendy & DB, a dynamic duo/band from Chicago, address the important messages for children and all people that we need to work together, be happy, feel our feelings, and take care of our wonderful world and ALL the folks that live in it.”  Now that makes a whole lot of sense!  This is a two part-er.  Episode 91 will feature Wendy Morgan talking about all things Wendy and DB.  Episode 92 will focus on DB and his approach to making great music for kids and families.

Good Stuff Sports #10 – Eater X (Tim Janus)

I remember watching Tim Janus in the Coney Island Hot Dog Eating competition on July 4th a few years ago.  I thought his Ultimate Warrior facepaint was awesome.  I think saw him on an MTV reality special which showcased how he goes about training and what his professional eating competitions are like.  Tim graciously responded to a twitter message about coming on the show and talking about how he came to be a professional eater.  It’s important to know that there is training that goes in to being on the professional eating circuit.  What food does Tim recommend that aspiring pro eaters begin with?  You’ll have to listen to find out!  And the burping!  This is a can’t miss episode.

Episode #88 – Sarah Spurrier

Sarah Spurrier has created her very own youtube show called ‘Good Morning Sunshine’.  It’s sweet and fun and filled with puppets.  There are featured craft projects, puppets, recipes, and puppets (PUPPETS)!.  I completely appreciate what Sarah does.  She is a one woman operation who creates and oversees every aspect of her show.  You need to hear her talk about my favorite character, Professor Schnozzola.
