Lisa’s Adventure Club: Death Valley National Park (0:00:00) As part of our Adventure Clube, we are featuring national parks and monuments to help you and your family plan your summer adventures to the most historic and natural sights in the U.S. The park we are covering this week may have a morbid name, but don’t let this sway you from adding it to your list. We are talking about Death Valley National Park in California. Here to guide us through the “hottest, driest, and lowest” national park is Abby Wines, the management assistant of this great park. The History of Mother’s Day (0:20:32) As you know, Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday. Which means if you haven’t called your mom in a while to chat and tell her you love her, now is the perfect time, especially as we continue to socially distance ourselves. Whether you’re calling up your mom or making your wife breakfast in bed, Mother’s Day traditions are always fun and a great way to show the important women in your life that you care and appreciate them. But, do you ever wonder how it all started—why we have Mother’s Day as a national holiday? Well, here to answer all our questions about the history of Mother’s Day, is Connell Branan, National President of American Mothers Incorporated, the official sponsor of Mother’s Day. Kickstarting Down the Door (0:34:59) Do you have that one idea? The idea for a product or business that you know would just change the world. When you think about your idea you get excited, and when you look around and see no one doing this brilliant idea you’re just confused that no one’s tried to build this business already. However, you might also be confused on where to begin and asking yourself how are you going to get the money to start your business? Well lucky for you we are talking to Samit Patel today. Samit is a world-recognized leader in helping businesses raise money through crowdfunding on websites like Kickstarter. Throughout his career he has raised over 31 million dollars and helped start several businesses. The Titanic Musicians (0:50:35) Stories are more important than ever right now. They’re providing us with entertainment, comfort and maybe even important lessons. Knowing how important stories are especially right now, we wanted to invite back onto the show our favorite storyteller, Sam Payne of BYU Radio’s The Appleseed. Mini Book Club: Hugo and Edgar Winners (1:09:43) Rachel Wadham, of BYU Radio’s Worlds Awaiting, talks with Lisa and Richie about the books that won Hugo and Edgar awards that are worth checking out. Spring and Summer Fashion (1:24:54) I don’t know about you, but I’ve gotten to the point of no longer wanting to wear sweats every day. Whether I’m quarantining in the house or escaping to buy groceries, I’m ready to start getting dressed up! It makes me feel good and more confident. But I don’t want to put on just any old thing from my closet. I want to be in style. So, what are this spring and summer’s fashion trends? Well today, we have fashion designer, celebrity stylist, Project Runway contestant, and my little sister Amanda Valentine on the show to tell us everything we need to know about this season’s fashion.
