    The Great Raisin Summit (Morgan Taylor & Gustafer Yellowgold)

    The Great Raisin Summit (Morgan Taylor & Gustafer Yellowgold)

    Andrew knows two people who have a real problem with raisins: Polly and visitor-from-the-Sun Gustafer Yellowgold. Musician/cartoonist Morgan Taylor was kind enough to facilitate this summit of Earthlings and Sunlings in our continuing series about what Treats are (and aren’t.)
    You can find all of Morgan’s multimedia Gustafer chronicling at  gustaferyellowgold.com or listen to his latest audiobook A Cooler World on Audible.
    Thanks to Morgan, Gustafer, Slim the eel and Stephanie Meyers the publicist for making this a cooler podcast -- and a big thank you to our awesome supporters for supporting the work we do at patreon.com/earsnacks! Y’all make this a cooler world indeed.
    We’ve got more Ear Snacks in store for you soon, but we always want to hear what your kids are thinking about and find a way to invite them on the show -- visit earsnacks.org to let us know?
