Hosting (0:00:00) Lisa and Richie chat about their experiences hosting different events. Stargazing (0:13:34) There’s something so mysterious about the night sky that makes you wonder what’s out there. It’s so big and full of stuff, but to the casual viewer all you can really see is the moon and a few stars. A lot of people would love to see more in the night sky,but don’t know what to look for or how to stargaze in general! And with all the visual distractions today, how do you keep your kids entertained when gazing out into the stillness of space? Jackie Faherty, an astrophysicist at the American Museum of Natural History, joins us to give us some tips to make our stargazing experience fun for the whole family. How to Learn Anything (0:34:54) Have you ever placed limits on yourself by saying “Oh, I’m just not a ‘math person’” or “I don’t have an ear for music”? Or worse—has someone elsetold you one of these things? For decades, people believed that intelligence is limited, and that some people just aren’t as capable of learning. But today we know that our brains are constantly changing and growing. Dr. Jo Boaler, Professor of Mathematics Education at Stanford and author of Limitless Mind, joins us to share how anyone really can learn anything. Heirloom Recipes (0:50:21) What was your favorite meal that your mom made you as a kid? What about your grandmother? Or maybe your dad had a special sauce that he loved to make. Food can connect us, both across the table and across time as recipes are passed down from generation to generation. So how can we preserve and appreciate heirloom recipes? Here to talk us through it is Valerie Frey, archivist and author of "Preserving Family Recipes: How to Save and Celebrate Your Food Traditions." Parent-Teacher Relationship (1:05:29) We all have those teachers that really made an impact on us, and we want our kids to have those same experiences. No one wants their kids coming home crying because they feel picked on by the teacher, not listened to, or that they understand the teaching methods. So how do we, as parents, help our kids foster that wholesome classroom experience? Dr. Susan Sheridan, author of "The Tough kid: Teachers and Parents as Partners," joins us today to teach us how we can help our kids succeed by establishing relationships with their teachers. Disney+ (1:25:27) Sometimes I get a craving to watch one of those old Disney classics, but they’re actually harder to come by than you’d think. A lot of them aren’t in Redbox, Netflix, and it can be a little pricey to head to the store to buy them every time you want to get a craving. Imagine a service that would allow you to watch any Disney TV show or movie any time you want! Well it seems like that’s becoming a reality. Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+, might be what we have all been waiting for! Dan Jackson, an author for The Thrilliist, is talking with us and he’s going to give us the inside scoop on what we can expect from Disney+!
