Raffi Cavoukian is a magical musician. His songs, like “Baby Beluga” and “Down by the Bay,” have wordplay and rhyme schemes that are as crowd-pleasing as they come — sweet, silly sing-alongs for kids and adults alike. But his work is anything but simple. Much like the folk singers who inspired him, a radical philosophy underscores all that he does. In "Finding Raffi,” comedian, writer, and podcaster Chris Garcia takes us on a journey through a 10-part series tracing Raffi’s life from aspiring folk singer to international kids’ superstar to outspoken activist for climate action and a child-centric world. Produced in partnership with Rococo Punch.

What happens when Raffi takes a break from making children’s music and rolls out a protest album for adults?
I am really enjoying the show itself. The interviews and use of Raffi’s music throughout is lovely, but there seems to be consistent problems with editing. The conversation has jumped noticeably without a transition multiple times, making me rewind to see if I missed something, or pressed a skip button only to hear the same jump again. Most recently there was almost 10 empty minutes at the end of the episode making it unclear if the episode was meant to end or if they left a whole section out only for it to start and stop again in the last several minutes. Between the editing problems and frequent commercials I have a hard time enjoying or recommending the show even though I find the show itself interesting and enjoyable. I hope the makers go back and fix the editing errors, so I can recommend this to friends and family.
I started with season two, first thing I thought of when I really started listening was that Raffi is the modern day Mr. Rogers, lol then I noticed Fred Rogers is the topic of season one! Both refuse commercialization, child centered ❤️ both excellent seasons in their own way, recommended lesson❣️
Thank you so much for the podcast Finding Raffi. I am really enjoying learning all about Raffi especially since I have been a fan of his music since the very beginning of his career of singing children songs. I have been a Nanny for 40 years and teaching the children I have cared for in the past, as well as now, the songs of Raffi has always been my top priority. I love the fact that his high standards of not letting advertisers exploit children is another reason why I love him and his music so much.
