Episode #75! That’s a lot of episodes. I got the chance to talk to someone that we call “our guy” around Good Stuff Studios. Randy Kaplan‘s music has been in high rotation for years in our house and car. He’s witty, smart, and unafraid of tackling the big issues like farts, chips, grape juice, and nose squeezing. We love his music and he’s the same person on his records as he is in conversation. Enjoy!! Don’t forget to tag friends and share this episode to get a $100 Waiter.com gift certificate! It’s worth it!
If you’ve listened to kids music over the last several years you’ve heard Mista Cookie Jar. He has collaborated with so many of our favorite artists! It’s no wonder why, I knew from the first second of our conversation that he was easy to talk to and had a big heart that goes straight into his music. This interview was in the works for a long time, and I’m so glad to finally share it! Be sure to stay tuned to the end for Cookie’s new song “Serotonin”. Additionally, be on the lookout for Lucky Diaz and the Family Band’s new album which features Mista Cookie Jar on three brand new songs!
I talked to Twinkle a few weeks ago and she was so generous to share the story of how she came to the idea of Twinkle Time and Friends. Her pre-Twinkle career is pretty incredible too. She is a complete “Do it yourself-er” from songwriting to the development of the stage show. Twinkle also makes a real effort to ensure that all of her music and shows are bilingual. It’s clear that her live show would be a magnet for young kids. She is in the midst of an Indiegogo campaign to finance her new album and other projects. If you like what Twinkle has to say consider helping her realize her dreams for her new album.
Hockey is a great sport. It’s fast paced and so fun to watch live. I had never thought about what it would be like to be a parent to a young hockey player. Luckily, I had a resource to fill me in. Neil Wattier, who is the host of The Hockey Parent Podcast, shared his experiences living the life of a hockey family. I learned a ton about the game and about the dedication that it takes to help a young athlete realize their dreams. Be sure to subscribe to Neil’s show, and tell a friend about Good Stuff Sports as well!
