Unhealthy Baby Food (0:00:00) Have you ever had to tell your kid no way on buying a snack because it has WAY too much sugar in it? A lot of parents want to start their kids off right and keep them away from those delicious yet evil foods. But do these bad habits start even earlier than we may think, even as early as infancy? Doctors have recently been speculating that baby food companies have been starting our kids off on these harmful habits without us knowing by including high levels of sugar and fat in their foods. Joining us to talk about this subject is Dr. Sabina Rebis, a family medicine physician and medical journalist. Finance for Kids (0:13:13) There’s nothing cuter than seeing kids do grown-up things. That is, until it’s our own kids and it starts to cost us! A lesson that is vital to teach little ones before they grow up is proper money-handling. If we want our children to become financially-savvy adults, we have to teach them how to be financially-savvy while they’re still at home. Here to help us do that is Personal Finance Lecturer, Janae Chandler. Gifting Experiences (0:33:53) Friend of the show, Carrie Ann Rhodes, gives us ideas for experiential rather than material gifts. Friendsgiving (0:50:34) We’re getting pretty close to Thanksgiving now—which is such a great holiday—but with having so many family members in a room together it can also complicated and stressful. And while we’re grateful for our families, don’t we want to show appreciation for our friends as well? Well, we might have something you can do with your friends this year that solves this conundrum. Host a Friendsgiving! Here to share with us tips for celebrating our friends this Thanksgiving season is Suzannah Gerber, or Chef Suzi, vegan Executive Chef Consultant and author. The Experience of Live Music (1:05:55) Throwing in those airpods to listen to music just feels like second nature now. You can turn on your favorite song in less time than you can snap your fingers. And it’s amazing. But music, just like many other things in society, used to be a much more social and cultural experience. Maybe we’re missing something. Dr. Luke Howard is a musicologist and college professor whose research focuses on music reception history and the place of classical music in popular culture. With his research and knowledge on music history, we thought he’d be the perfect person to talk to about what we might be missing in our music participation.  NaNoWriMo (1:23:48) Have you ever heard of NaNoWriMo? That is not just a bunch of baby talk, but an acronym for National Novel Writing Month, which takes place during November. It began in 1999 as a challenge to write 50,000 words of a novel from November 1 through November 30. All over the country, writers and aspiring writers are participating in this amazing feat. Any writer who reaches the 50,000 words by the end of the month is considered a winner. We have with us a friend of the Lisa Show and veteran writer Colleen Story to help all you writers get motivated.
