She's the 30 time Emmy nominated producer behind Nickelodeon's Blue's Clues and creator of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, not to mention PBS's Super Why, Amazon's Wishenpoof and Netflix's Charlie's Colorforms City. Needless to say Angela has created, developed, and executive produced numerous children's series all from her study of child development and psychology. Her new book is titled, Radical Kindness: The Life-Changing Power of Giving and Receiving. She is married and has two daughters.




    Angela tells Daphne and Hilaria about creating programming for children that focuses on education and emotional learning. She discusses how teaching children through television is an ongoing process that evolves. Her belief is that moms shouldn't feel guilty about screen time as long as what kids are watching is educational and promotes development, which is her goal for all the kids shows she produces. She grew up on Mr. Rogers and Sesame Street and takes that wholesome programming with her into her own shows. Angela prides herself on the thorough research done to make her shows uniquely positive forces for kids.
