Episode #171 – Tim Seston

Episode #171 – Tim Seston

Tim Seston is a master storyteller and family musician. His brand new record ‘On A Roll’ is filled with witty wordplay and upbeat fun songwriting. Tim and I talked about a wide breadth of topics from where he lives, to stories he tells, to the music he makes. Be sure to check out his website and facebook page for tons of content your family will love! “Tim’s friendly vocals make some of the tougher concepts he sings about more accessible. “Bright Red Truck” explores several emergency situations and how quickly the fireman, who he turns into a friend by naming him Peter, is on the scene to help. “Bring on the Thunder” makes what could be a scary storm into an opportunity to create new memories. “Canker Sore” is a catch-all term to describe a day where nothing goes right. And “Charlie’s Monsters” come straight from a child’s thoughts.” Be sure to stay tuned all the way through the end of the show to hear the title track ‘On A Roll’.

*Note from Mike* – Tim and I had a great conversation. Unfortunately my end of it was very glitchy and unusable. I edited Tim’s side to salvage the interview and hopefully it flows nicely. Luckily it’s really fun to hear Tim talk about his career. So it goes in the wild west of podcasting!

Episode #170 – Frances England Returns

It was an honor to have Frances England back on the show to talk about her brand new record, ‘Blue Skies and Sunny Days’. We really got into the music. Frances recently won the top Fids and Kamily award for album of the year. It’s that good! Frances’ music is in high rotation in our house, and I know that many other people love her music. She’s an excellent person as well. Be sure to stay tuned through the end of the show to hear her brand new song ‘Carefree’.

Episode #169 – Lee Overtree (Story Pirates)

Lee Overtree and the Story Pirates Podcast were critical to the creation of the Good Stuff Kids Podcast. I vividly remember my son and I listening to the Story Pirate’s podcast as we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco to Marin. We loved it from first listen. I was so happy to have a chance to talk to Lee about all aspects of the Story Pirates. It’s more than a podcast, it’s a program that goes into schools and teaches writing and creative fun. You will not believe how many Story Pirates there are working around the country! Lee finds the meaning behind the stories and honors the kid authors throughout this conversation.

There are two Story Pirates books as well as a brand new record called ‘Nothing Is Impossible’. What I loved the most about this conversation with Lee is how much he loves the stories that kids write and he values and honors the writers with such authenticity.

Episode #167 – The Green Orbs

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m thankful for bands like The Green Orbs who are making certified and bonafied awesome music for kids and families. It’s extra special because Eddie and Heather are brother and sister! Their brand new record, ‘Thumb Wrestling Champions’, is awesome in every way and not just because Abraham Lincoln shows up. You can hear the full title track at the end of this episode. The Green Orbs are truly pushing their digits to the limit (maybe the best line in recorded music, you’ll hear it).
