Good Stuff Sports #21 – Bob Katz

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.  If you have a young athlete in your home they will enjoy this conversation and Bob’s book.

Here she is!  Margot Bevington is a teacher and musician who makes joyful and gentle music that you and your family will enjoy.  This is her first podcast interview and she knocked it out of the park.  We talked music and about her studies which include Avante Garde music.  It blew my mind!  It was so cool that she took time out of her day job which is teaching music to high school students (and many other ages) to talk to me.

It’s winter break!  That means lots and lots of family togetherness.  Which means lots and lots of opportunities to get frustrated with all kinds of behavior.  Luckily I talked to an expert on how to handle these times as parents.  Carla Naumburg is a clinical Social Worker, Parent Coach, and Author.  Her latest, ‘How to Stop Losing Your Sh*t with Your Kids’, will be released soon and it is guaranteed to help.  Carla took the time to help me out with some pointers that will be beneficial to you as well.  She’s also really really funny.  Fair warning – there is mild adult language in this episode.

Episode #173 – The Nik Naks

The Nik Naks originally caught my eye on Instagram.  I saw that they were working on a book and plush toy to go along with one of their songs.  I’m always curious about the direction that music takes people, so I reached out.  We exchanged a few emails and set up a time to talk.  Sam and JF are incredible musicians who are making it work on the Las Vegas scene.  I love Las Vegas and it was interesting to hear from Sam and JF about what their lives as working musicians was like.  Of course, I also had to get the scoop on what led them to music for kids and families.  I was also really excited to talk to them about their music.  Stay tuned all the way to the end of the show to hear their song ‘Get Up And Go’.  “
