February 18, 2020 : Sonic hits the big screen

We take a look at Sonic the Hedgehog, a hero for you and your parents, too! We'll also talk about the problem of plastic, the upcoming Census and your chance to become an astronaut (well, sort of). Of course, we also look at some books you might enjoy and a toy that maybe would be a present for a younger sibling.

February 11, 2020 : Speak up!

We talk to an author who encourages young people to say what's on their minds, and we also go to an opera to see what that's about. Besides that, we'll review some books, experiment with babies, talk about texting while walking and then peek at a skeleton in an underwater cave!

We'll take you backstage at Colorado Ballet's production of Peter Pan so you can learn how the dancers fly without crashing into each other. We'll also review a novel and a book about the importance of bugs and insects, take a second look at Elon Musk's Starlink system and watch as the United Kingdom says good-bye to the European Union.
