Show #201 – April 24, 2011

In Podcast by Steve Swanson2 Comments

This show falls under the category of “amazing opportunities”. Recently, Sesame Workshop, The USO, singer Nick Jonas, and Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden were all in Columbus to present the official launch of a new USO/Sesame Street Live touring show. The show will be performed almost exclusively for military families stationed overseas. The show is geared mostly to the children in these families, who can sometimes find it stressful to constantly be moving around as a parent is transferred from one base to another. Having to constantly change to new environments – and leave old friends behind – can be extremely difficult for children. This new show introduces a brand new Sesame Street character whose background is identical to these children, and along with her Sesame Street pals, this new character expresses feelings that many children in military families share.

Many, many thanks to Sesame Workshop and the USO for the work they do for children, for our military, and for military families everywhere.

The MuppetCast is sponsored by, The Fingerbucket Report, and Bell, Book & Comic. Life should be more Fun!
