Prepare yourself for some sweet and soulful sounds. Evan and Vanessa join me to talk all about their new album ‘In Our World There Are No Strangers’. This was a great talk and you’ll want to hear a very beautiful and emotional (in a good way) story from Evan about how they believe in and are inspired by the those in their lives. Be sure to listen all the way until the end to hear the song ‘Sun Sun Sun’. It’s a beauty.

I had the best time talking with Rebecca Cunningham about the incredible Girl Tales Podcast. We had a wide ranging conversation which focused on the creation and vision for her show. This is the podcast for girls and families who are looking for something different that reflects how we teach want to teach our daughters.
“Girl Tales is a podcast featuring reimagined fairytales. Damsels in distress? Princesses in need of protection? You won’t find those here. The girls in our stories take control of their own destinies, turning your favorite fairytales into exciting new adventures. Written by women, non-binary, and trans male playwrights, Girl Tales offers a feminist twist on classic fairytales, fables, and myths. With energetic voice actors and professional sound design, these radio plays burst to life at the touch of a button.”
The Space Chums are “The Galactastic Rock Band For The Kids Of The Universe”. Galactastic indeed! The Space Chums have the rock n’ roll chops to appeal to both kids and families. They go all out for their live shows with videos, lasers, fog, and robots! Be sure to listen all the way to the end to hear their song ‘Calling All Space Cadets’. It’s time to blast off!
Sometimes things don’t work out the way we plan. That’s the case for EZ the main character in Bob Katz’s “EZ And The Intangibles”. It’s a basketball story, but more so it’s a story of resilience that young athletes will relate to and learn from. Bob and I talked about hoops, refereeing, youth sports, and about his book. Enjoy!
