Ear Snacks for Parents: Anti-Racist Parenting with Alphabet Rockers' Kaitlin McGaw & Tommy Shepherd
How can we practice anti-racism as a family?
We feel a special responsibility to address this topic thoughtfully with you and your children beginning with this episode of Ear Snacks for Parents.
In conversation with Kaitlin McGaw and Tommy Shepherd of Alphabet Rockers, we think aloud about advocacy, parenting, and so much more - including their anti-racist course for families: We Got Work to Do.
Please check out their amazing work at alphabetrockers.com and thanks for listening!
Little Bitta Joy
You know what we did at our house this week? We had a dance party. We turned on some of our favorite music and we jumped around our house, all together. And we smiled.
So this week on Ear Snacks we want to play some moments and music from the show that might bring a smile to your face.
Today is different than yesterday. And tomorrow is going to be different than today. But we wanted to let you know that we're here today, and we know you are too.

Episode 26: Tempo!
Come play around with the speed of music!
This episode is designed for kids to experiment with the playback speed function on most podcast players, inviting them to adjust the speed of the our music & conversation from 1x to 2x to 1/2x. We introduce the basics of musical tempo, figure out how to tap along to Parry Gripp’s pleasantly danceable 136 bpm tune Pancake Robot, and wonder why super-slow-moving things always find themselves in a molasses analogy.
