John Demers has had a very unique and cool career in showbiz. Ever thought about being an actor as a younger person? He did it! Ever watch the West Wing? He was on it! Ever dreamed of creating your own educational TV show and filming it in your home town? He did it! It’s called Rusty Bucket Kids, and you’re going to love hearing about it. It’s quickly approaching the 10th anniversary of the show, and I was thrilled to get to talk to John about some of the behind the scenes work that went into making the show.
Lisa and Mike like to go on vacation. Don’t you? The main difference is that Lisa and Mike like to go on bicycle vacations. They ride their bikes everywhere! They’ve even started bringing their kids along. They document their trips of their Youtube Channel. You’ll learn a lot from hearing how they prepare and be super jealous of some of the places that they’ve been!
Here’s a special treat – Mike also has a career as a musician for kids! He’s the guy behind 7 kids albums, Howdy Toons and Rainbow Songs (a kids music program) You won’t want to miss that part of the conversation. Stick around for his gargantuan song ‘Gigantosaurus’.
Happy episode 125! Happy 2 year podiversary! To celebrate I got to meet up with Melita and Isaac at Isaac’s house in Oakland not too long ago. I had such a nice time talking with them about their partnership, and kinda putting them on the spot to say nice things about each other. Which they did! I also got to hear them perform several songs just for me! Don’t worry, you’ll hear them on this episode as well. Melita and Isaac work really well together and it was so fun to see them interact and talk about the music that they make. They’re intentional in the music they make and are two of the kindest people I’ve ever been around!
Do you know anything about bitcoin? I know nothing. I had another talk with Joel Salvino from Good Stuff Sports #14 because in addition to being an expert hiker/backpacker, he also knows about bitcoin. Joel did the best that he could to teach me, but I’m pretty sure I just don’t get block chains and mining for bitcoin. Anyhow, it was really fun, and you’ll probably get it quicker than I ever will.
I also talked to Nik Lettuce, whose brand new podcast for kids and families ‘Nik Lettuce Clubhouse’ is premiering in April 19th. It was great to talk to Nik, and he made some Wrestlemania predictions.
Obviously, good stuff for kids and families is not limited in scope! Wrestling, bitcoin, and crows. All in one episode. Enjoy!
Talking with Lori from Music Monkey Jungle was a blast. She is high energy and fun. Just like the music she makes! We had a great conversation about music and what she studied in grad school! ORFF! You’ll have to listen to find out what exactly that is. If you’re looking for fun music with all kinds of great messages and opportunities for movement then Lori and Music Monkey Jungle have you covered
Don’t worry, it’s not that Stinky… My new buddy Adam from Stinky Ninja told me the story behind the songs and stories. Stinky Ninja have got great quality music and a ton of videos to share. Every week they release a new video and they’re starting live performances. If you’re in Australia you’ve got to check them out! You’ll love their song ‘Tres Amigos Stinky’ at the end of the show.
