    What if all of What If World had a potluck?

    What if all of What If World had a potluck?

    Petey the Party Planner Pirate puts on a potluck party, and there are a few surprises in store… also, a lot of candy casseroles. Then the world gets taken over, obviously.

    Lessons include: It’s okay to ask for help sometimes; setting a good example can feel pretty great even if it doesn’t always inspire others to do the same.

    Lessons include: You may change your appearance, but people are going to have a hard time liking you until you like yourself; finding your path is difficult for everyone, but it’s okay to accept help along the way.

    Bonus: "Imagined Life Family" preview!

    Our friends at Wondery are sponsoring us this week. So we're bringing you an exciting sample of their great new show, Imagined Life Family!

    Imagined Life Family immerses you in the surprising moments and challenges that shaped someone’s life before they became successful-- but there’s a catch. You won’t find out who you are until the end of the episode, unless you follow the clues along the way! In this episode, you long to go to Africa and have adventures like Tarzan. But everyone tells you girls aren’t supposed to do things like that. You’ll just have to prove them wrong. Take a journey with Imagined Life Family and see the world through someone else’s eyes.
