    Introducing: Let the Kids Dance!

    Introducing: Let the Kids Dance!

    You know that Kevin Bacon movie where a small town outlaws dancing and the teens fight back? What if I told you that happened in Seattle. In the 90s.

    Let the Kids Dance is a new podcast telling an untold story from a famous moment in music history – the rise and fall of Seattle’s teen dance ordinance. A story of moral panic, grassroots activism, and an unstoppable music community that fought for its freedom.

This is such a well put together podcast. Amazing to hear things that are so close to my home. I’ll be listening to it again.

Please do more!

Very Well done

Anna did a great job on this story. I remember when it first was released and read it in the news but then as time went on never followed up. She did a great job with the story. Coming from a deep ranching and farming background myself I thought the story was very well put together.
