If you haven't listened yet, it's great fun. Episodes are broken into bite-sized chunks, easy to listen to, and equally engaging for adults and kids. To us it's about cultural literacy: we believe everyone should know about Nelly Bly, Henry "Box" Brown, or P.T. Barnum, and everyone should have the opportunity to hear music from the Great American Songbook and the American Folk cannon. So we create something special, and we mix it all together with our own unusual approach. The history comes in the form of music, quizzes, stories and more. It's like a modern-day variety show, except deceptively educational!
The future is bright: our iTunes reviews are stellar (though we could use more), we got a sponsor to help defray our operational costs, we've been featured on some great "Best Of" lists, and we've recently joined a growing and powerful affiliate group called Kids Listen, which boasts amazing kid-friendly podcasts such as the acclaimed science show "Tumble" and the adventure-based serial-story program "The Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian."
We have some high goals - to reach a wider and larger audience is most important. If we succeed in that, it should make things easier to find a market for the picture books we create, the album we aim to release, and who knows what else?
