Happy Thanksgiving! Getting the opportunity to speak to the ground breaking and barrier smashing Dr. Jen Welter was a privilege. We talked about football, and never letting an obstacle stand in the way of our dreams. Dr. Jen was the first female coach to work on an NFL sideline. She played tackle football, and we got into a fairly in depth conversation about the difference between having football instinct and being coachable. It was so interesting to hear about how her education has helped her to be a successful coach. Make sure you check out when Dr. Jen is coming to your town to lead a football clinic.
Let’s get funky with Micah from Dadada and the Dinos! In his words “Dad-centric funk describes my life pretty well”. If you know anything about the Good Stuff Kids Podcast then you know that Dad-centric funk also describes… me! “Dadada and the Dinos combine Funk and Soul from the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s into something new. From their Philadelphia home the Dinos make music to get the whole family moving! When they’re not jamming out the Dinos enjoy not being extinct, ice cream, and evolving. Kids deserve real music and parents do too. Dadada and the Dinos will bring the funk!”
I had the pleasure of talking with Dennis Scott, who produced the incredible ‘Thank You, Mister Rogers’ album. It’s a star studded affair with Mister Rogers compositions performed by Mickey Dolenz, The Cowills, Rita Wilson, Tom Bergeron, Kellie Pickler, and many more. Dennis Scott and I covered a lot of territory during this conversation, and I learned a lot about him, and his wide ranging career as well as a lot about Mister Rogers that I did not know. Make sure you listen to Kellie Pickler’s version of ‘It’s Such A Good Feeling’ which you can hear at the end of this episode.
Ooooh yeah. I loved talking to Dan Elliott from Pointed Man Band about his music and specifically the brand new record ‘Amongst the Tall Trees’. You’ve got to hear the song ‘Go!’. It’s awesome. A blast of energy and fun that will make you want to get outside and play. It’s just an appetizer too. The whole album is awesome. Enjoy this convo with Dan!
