This week, we revisited our roots in the San Francisco Bay Area, where Zephyr attended the famous (in rock music circles) venue in Berkeley where Green Day, among others, got their start. We toured the Jelly Belly factory (the Goelitz Candy Co.) in Fairfield, and found that the owners are very appreciative of Ronald Reagan for helping popularize their jelly beans, but show little acknowledgment of Harry Potter, who's helped promote its Bernie Botts Every Flavor Beans. And we returned to perform at several Sacramento Libraries.

Our podcast story this week is "The Boy Who Listened to Birds", one of the "noodlehead" stories from Russia.

Happy Listening,

Dennis, Kimberly and Zephyr

What a great way to tell a story! 12-year-old Micah, who has autism, normally relies heavily on visuals (he enjoyed one of your live performances in 2004) but these podcasts are captivating him (and me!). Keep up the good work! And Zephyr, I think I may just buy your books for him soon. We\'ve read the samples and he\'d love them!
