Kidsmomo Podcast #61: Superheroes and Sweet Potatoes

January 24th, 2012 by

Remember when we used to have themes for our podcasts? Well, this time we accidentally created a themed podcast — by reading each other’s minds! Or maybe it was just coincidence… Either way, we’ve got superheroes all over the place! Take a listen to meet Captain Amazing, Captain Nobody, a few animal crime-fighters, and — completely unrelated — a sweet mother of potatoes!
