Week 48: Anger, Snuggles and Resolutions

Transcript Episode 40: Loving Yourself at the Holidays

Welcome to Sing With Your Feet, the podcast in which we make every attempt to think differently about things.

In the time leading up to the launch, it was a labor of love, the kind of thing that becomes the only thing you want to talk to anyone about.

Thankfulness Week: The Big Kid

In the first session of the Wool is Cool project, I lead the (mostly) French kids in a discussion (in English) about clothes.
