"angela santomero" Discussed on COVID-19: What You Need to Know

"With the deep dive on a number of your various Pacific Coronavirus. Questions there's never been a shortage of doctrine. So we're very happy. You're here with US first question. Can you explain the four phases of a vaccine trial? Well we've heard about this before because again there's this mad rush to develop in warp speed the vaccine but we can't cut certain steps so basically there are three main phases clinical phases and trials. That have to go on to develop a vaccine you can think of them all as evaluating safety and efficacy and in greater numbers as we go along so stay. Phase one. Very small numbers safety and efficacy than you broaden those numbers to a couple of hundred and phase two phase three thousands and again. You're looking at short term safety. Long term safety and efficacy across various populations. All right next question. Is there any specific reason why there have been so many tests that have false negative results so again we opened with this? We have to remember. First of all every test can have false positives and false negatives when you talk about false negatives for that's the nasal swab diagnose active infection if it's not done properly if the person isn't shouting enough virus because remember the way it's done is to amplify virus in the lab if it's not processed in a timely manner all of those things can give a false negative and you know this is something we have to remember. There's no such thing as a one hundred percent accurate test when you're looking for an infectious disease. Okay yeah very important to remember next question as more states up. Is it safe to let kids play contact sports? You know. I hope so because my daughter plays a contact sport at the collegiate level. But here's what we know right now. There was a recent publication in Jama just out a few days ago really from the American College of Cardiology ironically. And they're council on Sports Physiology. Because we know that Cova nineteen can affect the heart even in younger athletes and so they really delineate. When can you go back to exercise or contact sports competition and basically they're saying for mild symptoms no hospitalization at least two weeks and if someone is hospitalized and they need more formal evaluation to assess their heart in their heart function but there is obviously the risk of getting infected or spreading the infection with close contact sport? So again they they say with social distancing. That's pretty hard when you play sports like my daughter Ice Hockey. You're right up in there and spit flying everywhere or so. So that's TVD right. We'll have to see what that's right. I mean it is important to remember that this age group younger students. Younger children are at lower risk. But as we've covered before that does not mean zero risk so they still do need protection and some kind of precautions but that is being figured out literally as we speak all right. Dr Jen Ashton. Thank you so much and you can submit your questions to Dr Jen on her instagram. At Dr J. Ashton well as the school year comes to a close and summer activities have been canceled. Many parents are concerned that the summer will not lessen the amount of screen time. Their kids are getting so here to talk about prioritizing quality screen time is Emmy Award winning Creator and executive producer of shows like Daniel. Tiger's neighborhood and blue's clues we have Angela Santomero with US Angela. Thanks so much for joining us. We certainly appreciate it and we all know now more than ever. Our kids are using screens for everything for school for recreation for connecting with their friends and family. What is too much screen time in these times? You know it's such a complicated question. I base everything on the quality of the media. You know we always talk about that. We're feeding our kids brains with the media that they're consuming just like we're feeding their bodies with the food that we're giving them and so the idea of eating too much broccoli isn't thing so the idea of consuming really good quality media is also something that we have to take into consideration that we know what to look for that. We know what our kids are getting out of it that we can also balance it right that an hour of screen. Time is an hour of off screen time and that is the hope. Whenever we're creating shows is that we're viewing in doing right. We're inspiring kids by the media that we have to go outside and change the world at a social distance space of course but the idea that we're getting them up and moving and reading and practicing some kindergarten readiness skills doing dramatic play. If they're younger you know all of these things that they get their impassioned by with regard to the media and I think as parents were trying to do all of those things you just listed but you're the expert in children's educational programming. Tell US why quality media still is very important matters quite a bit in these times. You know it's all about the research you know everything that we're talking about in that we're learning during this time that it's really all based in the fact that there's research that's gone on kids. Media approve that cans not only enjoy the shows. We want them to understand and enjoy everything. But also that they're learning what we intend for them to learn so we do at nine-story none of research based programs not only on the formative level with kids all the time to prove that were teaching kids to read that were teaching the kindergarten readiness skills but also their longitudinal studies that prove from the University of Pennsylvania from University of Texas Alabama. That we are doing moving the needle with these programs so for super y you learning to read when you're watching super knowing that you can use the materials that we have the some of the Co view and if we can knock don't guilty about some of these quality programs that we're putting our kids in front of knowing that we're inspiring them to be able to then put out maybe some books that are easy for them to pick up and read or write their own ending to a story. You don't just being creative right now. With how the media is impacting them. Can you talk to us about using media verses letting it use us? I love that right. Especially in the in the right with all of the on demand programming. We can actually choose the shows that our kids with the most interested in choose certain episodes of our kids are afraid of the dark if our kids are getting nervous about something. There's a ton of Daniel Tiger strategies that we could be choosing a sharing episode that say and then having a conversation about it and we also talk about you. Know these are your kids friends and are they. Let's make sure first of all they're your friends that you want for your chance that if you open the living room if you open the front door that literally these are kids. You'd want to have over for dinner. So is Daniel Tiger. Somebody like that and be okay with talking about it. What would Daniel do you know? Having those conversations about media only enhances what are concerned learning from it and right now you know we really want to continue to enhance our vocabulary. We WanNa really try to motivate them to do things that they're excited about doing whether it's playing the piano just to play whether it's picking up bucks whether it's writing so this is the kind of thing where we're worried about the summer slump. We're worried about what we can be doing. And we can use educational media to do that. Well I mean it's incredible what you've been able to create and we certainly have parents. Thank you for all that you've done. Angeles and Santo. Thank you so much for being with.

"And I think that we live in a world where people we care so much about and how people perceive us we lose ourselves and the last thing we do is actually show up in the moment the way we need to instead were really worried about pleasing thing other people so we don't set boundaries. We're not kind to ourselves. We don't receive sometimes. We don't say what we need to say. And instead were hurting people all NIB mostly ourselves but sometimes other human beings. We could actually free if we could be kind and tell them the truth in the nicest way possible just to share truth. I don't think that ever happens enough. Like I don't know any scenario where it's happening enough and I just think it's amazing that you decided to write a book on it. Yeah I agree and in that same feeling of like giving all of yourself to work or your friends ends and not having any of your resources or reserves for when you get home you know in. That situation happens all the time right now. I'm just like you know. I have no patience nations and he said I can't give myself and yet that's the part of the day that all I can think about right. That's the part of the day that you know. You want to make sure that you're not anti British last year but you're staying in the moment with your kid right because tomorrow there. Nineteen college able to do that tonight. Thing that like I just I think from failing and living it and trying and learning is the only way that I can bite And share because it's not that this is oh look this is what I they do. It's perfect you know. I live it every day and it's messy and I learned from failures and I'm just constantly trying to bring much off the bat. Entre absolutely amazing. And it's so important and while we're still talking about the book for one more minute. Is there any steps that right now listeners can hear about you talk about action. Small actions people could take you said before one of the things in terms of finding that childhood wonder is like you know pulling out a paintbrush or doing my things like about what about radical kindness in terms of taking better. Care yourself any steps that people can take the I think the South Caras probably one of the bigger things that people above and really gravitating towards having that moment of South Carolina. I think the biggest thing is that it doesn't have to be long right. We could literally take five minutes of doing something that you love one of the things I talk a lot about. Is that sense. Are I hate to run right or I hate to this kind of. It's finding the thing that you actually do enjoy and then do that and and do it for five minutes right when in some sort of exercise in some sort of self care and some meditation some sort of you know like finding the right moment and right thing and then figuring out how to add to are those moments And then also south care in the sense of going back to those asking yourself the questions kind of like what you're asking me. What part of your life defines you write like trying to pivot and go back to what your morals and values are and what feeds you and what the bills you and? What excites you and just do more of it? You exactly those things that we do laugh you know and just to bring it full circle as we're closing so just in November just recently Blues Blue's clues and you came out.

Cathy of loving the book the part which resonates the most right now is suzy. Moore's idea that thinking in is the enemy. The most important thing is simply making a decision. It's advice I give my peers and team as a coach at work and really present to the fact that I need to take my own advice as as someone who doesn't WanNa do the wrong thing. I tend to be cautious and that can lead to analysis paralysis. What is wrong? Anyway who says as I reflect on twenty nineteen. It's been a breakthrough three year in many ways. I made a decision to explore facilitating workshops and executed five vision board workshops. I made a decision to be an art show every month in in two thousand eighteen gene and my art was exhibited eight months of this year. I made some extra money in these endeavors. Learned a lot also made the decision to invest in myself. And I knew I would do some work with you this year. Kathy I and I did at the glow retreat. I also felt the same way about a few others. WHOSE COURSE I purchased all worth it? That said it's time to make another decision that I was to to make in two thousand eighteen eighteen and that's the decision to get out there as a leadership life coach. That really came to me as I was reading your book Kathy. I've been doing this type of work for nine years. One of my worried about. I've been very safe if it worked for which I'm grateful I have an income from it and it's time to level up in twenty twenty. These are the questions that I'm keeping top of mind. What will my life look like if I keep holding onto? This need to be perfect. How different can my life be willing to be uncomfortable? What if I start wearing right now? Clarisa Clarisa that is so good. Thank you so much for sharing this. I'm just so proud of you. I'm just so happy this is so good at it really was such a gift to have been a part of this chapter in your life. I for you feel renewed.

"I don't know if I ever if I were stopped to you. Think of that way that they can just saying. That's amazing and it is really amazing. Like I feel like if somebody does one thing that's huge. You're like wow how but then the fact that you've done it over and over and over and over again as I don't even get it. It's kind of like I think you're genius you know. I think that that's fair to say so. That's just true not being nice So you said that you were friends with Fred Rogers. How did that happen? So blue's clues premiered I I would constantly talk it to press about being inspired by Fred Rogers the level of pacing by that his show had and how much he knew preschoolers. I always thought it. He'd literally didn't get the credit that he deserved for the level of work that he did right. That's me street was very splashing. I love sesame. It's not there's nothing about that. But frat what Mister Rogers Zebra did for me as a child. was that kind of inspiration that I used four was and so. The transitional devices of doing I used to talk about you know taking reference from the trolley and you know formal features of starting in the home and just a place of comfort and talking to the camera like there were definitely things where I was making sure or that. Everybody knew that Fred was that inspiration. And he had heard that any watched the show which I didn't know that he had blocked blue's clues and I had gone to an have meant where he was honored. And the head of that event said I know how you feel about this. I'm sitting at this table and and I could not I I couldn't eat. I couldn't get over it. You know the whole reason. I wanted to control subjects because they've united so that I can each child the way that you reached me and he was like what's what's your name. He started over and he invited me to his sat in. When I told you my dad was he? His eyes lit up in his team. Had he said he didn't like much of what's on television but he really he really liked Lucy. saw the Theory in Wisconsin. Of course. That's all I needed to hear. It was just like I got two living. I'm like and then he invited me and I got to watch him do that. You know the opening scene and Mike being in singing. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood in real time and I remember everybody saying I'm so sorry that we're not shooting the neighborhood of make believe I'm Mike. Are you kidding me. This is the part that I want to run. Everything was like. Oh my God loose I'm trying to Reagan's talking to me And so then that's when we started talking more about the media today and children's television and what he could he meet the show and just different things like that we would talk a little bit and then when he died His his team said you know he he really would trust you to promote his. Oh my God it's such an right and that's that's how Daniel Tiger was born. It was like that's how I what I mean about like. It's such a special love project. I remember not wanting to give that I clicked out and one of his. It's producers. That's me it's not like Fred is GonNa read it and I don't know he might read it but you don't. Yeah and I WANNA go back into. Where does this come from a new? Because it's it's so unrelenting like the Y.. Is So strong I'm imagining. There's a really big reason alumni. That's such a great great question. I do write about in medical penance. That idea that I feel like you you know. I grew up in a really chaotic loud Italian family And so I did feel seen. I literally wrote about feeling scene with Mister Rogers neighborhood. I think like a lot of us and love the show. You really felt felt seem I needed to talk to and that respectful way that I knew I was smart and had you know an understanding for literally what I could handle. What I you know? We were literally having a conversation. That's out and so that feeling Wanting that throughout my whole life I think Needing dot right is important was important to me and I think blue's clues it does a lot of that right which is literally trying to tell kids that you know when you use your mind and take a step at a time. You can do anything that you want to do. which I know is a hard concept that for right now because you also have to work really hard but the idea that you're putting in the effort is really important in that you're seeing so I'm sure there's more thibout on in terms of having to constantly prove yourself wanting to like you know like all of those things where you're never quite outside of high school I don't know like but I think that's part of it right. Where were you just? I just needed that that I needed to be seen as well. I think that's a big piece of bed. Yeah and it's really amazing. Now you're giving to one kid at at a time and I'm curious from a curriculum perspective. What are some of the lessons? You feel like even adults can learn that you really feel like you're trying to teach like how do we practice being vulnerable and messy and trusting and learning being that. We're safe like all of that. Just giving yourself permission to dream giving yourself permission to you'll giving yourself permission to express what you feel. I think that we we have cut ourselves off for so long from our actual self and I know that this is so much of what you help kids to do. So can you give us a lesson. Like how do we learn to do that. I think They're two answers for that. One is always saying even adults else can learn from kids TV or kids media because there's so many hundred percent tiger lessons right that we we could be taking to deal with our anger or to deal with our sadness that's right. Yeah and then. In the motivation behind writing radical kindness was to give some of those life lessons for adults right and so that feeling of breaking through the armor armor and feeding that inner child right and literally swinging what it feels like to swing on a swing again or running barefoot and the grass like little tiny things that people will tell. Oh you but that really speaks to your inner child and you like if you literally liked to paint and have never picked up a paintbrush since preschool. It's like go. Get a contrasts. You know like there's so many little things that we need to do and I think becoming a parent really helps us to to kind of have an excuse to go back into those things and if the more are you can play the more. You're you know you're accessing that level of sensitivity and caring compassionate and I talk about the benefit of the doubt and also changing the voices pieces that are inside. Your head is a strategy right. We all have voices from somewhere we need to change those typically voices that speak to our our best friend about so. It's those kinds of things that I talk about about little by little just taking matt armor and trying to peel away at it right and I think it's it's not easy especially depending on what life if has brought us but I do think being more wonder having more wonder more curiosity and trying to do what you want to have that level of playfulness that you wants lines that will help ignite that in you base. It's so true and I'm glad you segue into it because I do WanNa talk about this book. And it's interesting to to me is that the book is radical kindness and then it says the life changing power of giving and receiving and then the book is about these small actions to achieve more fulfill all happy successful life but subtitle is a life changing power of giving and receiving so how does giving and receiving connect to you are inner child and the steps to fulfilling successful life and thanked me spent so much of our ten giving as an adult right to our kids to our spouse. Also there's so much and the active receiving is really hard for US sometime around and like that imposter syndrome is all about that too right in so many ways even been receiving praise like I I. If someone says you know what's on sale you know say you know bringing act out but so you know it's hard and I think the idea of realizing that it's a gift. And it's a bonding moment. And it really does help to fill you feels you op is a really important thing and and you know the idea of kindness and the kind of curriculum literally scaffolding kindness every one of my shows. I just don't talk about it. You know and so p Diaz was actually the first Linda. Cement ski was like that's in is the first person to say that to me and to have research on that and I was like yeah. I do 'cause resigned. Research on all of that stuff and so to write it down for adults to turn it around was really empowering for me and really interesting to be able to get out and talk to adults about it because it is is what we try to give our kids to try to solve problems through looking at things from a different perspective right because we don't want them to solve their Swiss screaming and yelling and doing right a. and that's what we do as an adult so we're just literally trying to turn it around worse than times. The kindness is not necessarily just being nice. It's literally doing what's best inactivation and for you and for the other percent so it's that open. Those pizzas Yunliang the giving the receiving. That's so beautiful Just to sort of like go deeper into this idea. I'm just curious. Like what is radical kindness means you. What's your definition of radical kindness? You know it's sometimes sometimes. It hurts a little bit to be kind and somebody that I'm not saying to say something that's not nice but it's like literally having to say no sometimes to something because you're not. You're you're not feeling great or saying that giving an Epi pen like if you didn't know what you're doing and you just saw somebody do that you'd be like what is. What are you doing not awful that analogy of like it's literally lights the event? It's telling somebody that it's not. This is not the right job for them but there is a bigger passionate reason for you in this world. You're it's not that you're failing it's that this job is not right for you and now I'm pivoting you in the right direction.

"Doing before. Floor Convinced Hasta work and I was so passionate about Ya. We're spending four. Are you kidding me. Four hundred thousand dollars an episode kids will and this is what I say not on my team kid literally needs to be better off for watching this episode of this show than doing anything out because we're spending this much time I'm money and be. This is a responsibility. We have as for making media for for preschoolers or for kids in general right if they could be digging hole and bat is going to be way better than watching the show they better go dig that hole right and so we haven't done our job so I don't understand people who either have an ego when they do research. Yeah or people who don't even do research to think about how this I don't care if everyone in the room is laughing at a joke like if my four year old's don't think it's funny e than it's out like we don't you don't use it. There's no reason you know so anyway so I agree with you to me. It's an insurance policy. It's also back to the roots of like why we do what we do. You know one of my favorite moments of loose quizzes that we have been so geeky but we have a longitudinal study that was done by the University of adult. Dan Rather proves that kids scored better. I'm kindergarten readiness skills calls and standardized tests than our kids who didn't watch the show and mazing. That's amazing I. I want to ask you a sort of offshoot question for people who are listening right now. Who really want to do good work? And their makers and they want to make their own show in today's climate and you've made and what we're GonNa talk about it in a minute but you've made so many other successful shows and you also so now our CEO of a whole conglomerate of of so many other shows so you really really know this world. My question is for people in today's landscape. Would you say if you WANNA make a show test it first and then start seeing if you can create an audience on Youtube or on your own platform warm I g TV or whatever would you say get in line and try to get yourself a pitch meeting and that is still the tried and true way to wind up with the show Amir that no. I think that being a crater today in so different the idea that you can get what you want to say out to the world in any capacity three you utilizing you do cod calf right. If you have something to say we have an opportunity now to say it and you don't have to wait for someone at a network to tell you whether or not they like your idea or not. Because they're they have a whole other reason of why they might pick something up or not and so I'm constantly meeting with young people and you know every age really but it's mostly mostly young. People might go on your team. That can do what you don't do get together and make it like just make it and that's you know that's what's happening right now right. It's it's so exciting to see. Yeah and I love that you have that perspective. That's it's so true. It's amazing what can be created. Yeah absolutely absolutely. I don't think anything should ever stop. You and I should say like when you do partner with a company like ours at nine story. There's a ton of resources that we can bring to a concept and not all that we worked to of course that we can do that by all I would say is what people say about me right now is just a is another way. Yes like I. Am You know we get so many so someone ever so no all right just like take another path and just figure out another way you know but if somebody was has to come to you and they had not already proven the concept by creating a following around it as a mini series or something on the web. Would you say say oh come back to us when you know that you have a proof of concept or do you take pictures sometimes just based on the quality of the pitch and say we're GONNA make it. Yeah Ah just based on the quality of the Pech Times in. It's about the talent I always say it's really about the talent who I want to work with. And that doesn't mean that there are known entity it's just that passionate person who is open to all the ways that we need to do to get done whether it's partnering with a writer partnering with designer are doing you know like when I go back to the day of me again like you know not having an ego to be like okay. I'm going to do this by myself. It's like no I the teat we have comes to making something really great. And it's more about what you want to say and how it goes out in the world as long as somebody but he has that innovative way to look at things has an interesting idea. That has that the leader that hasn't been done and it's open to how we need to develop and get it to the market than I. I am not as well. I think those kinds of ideas. That's amazing and you guys. I WANNA remind you not only Angela. VINCIT successful blue's clues but she was also so creative executive producer head writer for Janelle Tigers neighborhood which I think I know every single episode and we have the sheets and we have the clothes and also super why which we also. I could sing the theme song right now. Galaxy and wishing poof which is such a cute show. All of the. I mean I'm literally you've you've been you've been making my life easy as what you've been doing because I have three little kids and this is what goes on in my house so because you have all of this experience and now now you're sitting in that seat as CEO of nine story where you are listening to pitches as you just said one of the things you look for is talent Eylandt. What else sets a pitch apart when somebody is thinking of like? Oh I want to create something. 'cause you see so many things I would imagine. Imagine there's no idea you haven't heard at this point. So what makes it stand out. Well two things I need to. I need to backtrack two things one. As Charlie's colleague from city there's also on net flicks myself in the second thing I wanted to say was Daniel. Tiger is a complete labor of love because of my love Upfront Roger so that was another like complete and utter love love project and totally with something right promoting as legacy was the goal and I and so proud that. There's a movie Adak Tom. Hanks movie in a documentary. And all of these these things about Back in the day was the goal of dental tiger in addition to bringing not socio emotional curriculum spam like literally as a team like this is the one like we care so much about it. But this is the one where you're going to get to watch it grow to this huddle level the way that we were watching bliss grow like it was so much fun to see that a loving what you're what during. Yes it's beautiful and then my daughter helped things on the shampoo signing of Bianca. Awesome So in terms of pitchers really what. I'm what we're looking for us to be the leaders in all kids family media so basically. We're always answering the question. Jen what are people looking for. What's the world need now? Why this show why? Now we're answering the question. You might be googling you know right now. There's a lot of Emphasis emphasis on. We haven't cracked it yet but emphasis on anxiety right and mindfulness and being seen and being heard and what could we do in the media that could solve for that right so we're looking for things like that we're looking for things and empower kids right things that you know want. We want every kid to see themselves in media. So what's an idea that like lie and not that we don't have to do it in one show but the idea that this is a taking a chance. This is something. That's a little different. This is something that's GonNa make you lean and so those are the kinds of ideas. Gets that really catch are catch I. This is such a good conversation before we go on.

"On what was so interesting about that. Was I got that. Bird's hurts idea of how the business of television is made How decisions are made what kids want? 'cause there was a big jerry. Born was the president of the time and there was a big push for research to talk to parents to talk to and to know what they want but nobody would talk to the little ones and I was just like get out of the way I want to get in there. They are so I would moderate the focus groups with the preschoolers so that we would play and I would get to know what they were really looking for. You know I respected this age group so much and I just they because of my point of view as a research eek and as an educator and I really had a different view when it came to making TV and making yet and it it was very different for Nickelodeon and so. That's how might in started. And then. Because I was on one of those people who observes for a long time before I really jump in and so why really kind of knew what Nickelodeon was looking for with regard to the next step for preschoolers for TV and size able to answer those questions nations for them and you just say which turns into blue's clues all my gosh. Okay so incredible that you first evolved. You knew that you had this awareness that you wanted to do this thing since you were cad and then you find yourself working here you out of place where maybe you could start to see the boots on the ground putting those things together but then you you say and then I had an answer for what might work and you're like and then I created blue's clues and you say it just like that you know but it's such a big thing like how did you come up with the idea for blue's clues as in like so. Many people want to come up with ideas for shows and they think they can do it and it's not as easy as it looks. So how is all that born born. Well you know the first thing I think is understanding like being in it being anywhere in production of Nubia right whether it's in the business of TV like being got a big corporation like nickelodeon or being boots ground as you say like being in the scripting room being somewhere right so that you know if you love it or you hate it or what. It means right to be able to do this thing. That's the first thing I tell people like. Just get a job anywhere you know in this world when I look back even my first job was. NFL Schwartz always mckinney. The camp counselor like I was always doing these kinds of things with kids and so that's the first thing the second thing is is zagging when everyone zigging right so or vice versa. So blue's clues. We knew that that Nicoletti wanted a game show right. It can double dare was really big and educator and so I had a meek in I wanted to sneak education and to what a game show would look like for preschoolers and the way in which to do that would be to have the kids at home v.. Those contestants right like in some ways if you don't give blues clues that way it no well enough right year. The kids at home. We're leaning in and answering questions and men. I'm scaffolding. Those lessons may go harder so my favorite part of the story that tell us. I failed miserably. The first I three times I went in to say okay. I would be in the room with people. Pitching adds a research consultant. And I would roll my eyes. 'cause I always say it's gone from Jersey and I've got this Hudson it'd be like Oh. This is awful so bad and so. Finally the had Nicodemus like Nick. Junior was like well. What would you do and I was? Let's hold on a minute and so I- research report. Because that's what I knew. An academic Mr Trump on how to educate kids do media and she was like this is lovely but but this is not a television show. And I'm like you're right and so I would go back and then I would create something else that you go. This is closer but it's not a television show And so I kept going back. Got To create. Okay here the characters. Here's the setting look like just kind of answer the questions that she would want and van had to literally right the way in which the characters would be speaking. Oh you know what I mean like literally rain a little bit more of what the idea was so that it would come to life and it came to life in such a way that she said okay. It was step by stop going to pair you with a director. Who has done this before? You're gonNA find a producer who had done this before who ended up becoming my best friends. The Voice of blew that one one who co created the whole show with me right like a designer by shade like gorgeous animation as what she created and so we partnered together and in eight weeks. The two of US came up with what Luke loses today right like literally taking the concepts and the ideas and the point of view and furthering it out and what's interesting about. looseness is the pacing. ASSOC slow that Tracy I would write and tracy withdraw little storyboards sketches of what the characters would do so that what people would on executive network would understand how the show would play out so that it wasn't because it was so different than what they were used to. Yeah that's amazing thing and then what's even more awesome. Is that you guys go and do it. And it worked and then it lasts for so long. What do you think it was that really made it? Click with the audience and what made it actually stand the test of time. I love that question. You're giving me Mattel's I think. The first first thing I wanted to say is that imposter syndrome is so real that I feel like I was proving myself. I can't talk for my whole team. I was proving myself with every episode with every season. We never rested on our laurels until it was over and then after you do something like a blue's excludes right like the feeling that you could ever do it again right or other shot like every time I write a script like anytime I do anything. Everyone's going to hate it you know and I can't do it to like if there. Is that sense where you know. Keep telling my kids to be in the moment and live at that moment. If there's anything I learned from not as loving not moment right so the truth is it was like that. It was that sense of like okay. Well here's pilot you can do right. And so my ammunition or like my secret sauce was knowing preschoolers and so I would go in like I was like. I'm going to make sure this works so I would fail in front preschoolers ads. Perfect the concept. Perfect the script so we were going back act two kids and preschool teachers and educators consistently through the process. I knew how much kids were reacting to the show before we got it to the pilot episode assode and one of my favorite moments of the pilot episode or two of them would be. We'd go into a focus group. which is what I used to do right when I was in research? Now on the other side I'm the producer and I'm watching Ben Test my show idea. Could it up against the other show to see who which is going to be up to date anyway. We're coming in and saying this is is be adjusted on. There was a we will give you five hundred dollars. We will give you a thousand. I need to keep this tape. My kids watching it over and over and over again we were like no you they might not on tv yet but like we already kids. Were just like losing their minds and so we were watching really interacted. And I'm in a meeting with fifty people at Nickelodeon and they're all discussing what's going to happen next and they just go crazy over blue's clues I got a bird's eye view of a listening to what that sounds like an entire company can get behind a show and then you're like okay now I have to make this and so the first season of blue's clues was nineteen. We were writing meeting in one thousand nine hundred five and you watch it now or when I I laughed I think of it. We did everything we could just in case they never let us make another episode. Ever on Oughta didn't give everything that they needed that we were just such a little family. such a close knit family of eighty time for ten years. So it was. It was really a fun ride and it was hard constantly creating apps so I just want to highlight two things because it's so visceral I just have to say it one is. You are so humble and it's so beautiful I I have to say that. That's gotTa be another reason why the show was so successful because at its core to have a person like that as a show runner really unusual. And it's a really big gift so I'm just really feeling that I just had to share that with you. That's number one one and the second thing I just WanNa say. Is that the reason that was such a great answer is because we've had so many awesome people on the show and they wind up all saying version of the same thing. which is that in order for business? In order for anything to be successful it has to have at its core radical empathy. The fact that you said you were taking it to the front lines and going into preschoolers and already testing it. That makes so much sense that you're not like yeah we're just GonNa like cross our fingers burgers and hold our breath and taking the air four hundred thousand dollars an episode later to see if it works. It's like no tested it. That's so smart. I think the people that I don't know I just remember thinking like I have to do this. You know that moment where you're like I can't go back to what I was.

We Wanna be impressive. WanNa be entertaining. We WanNa feel worthy and I know for myself. I just have spent so many years working so hard to be not what I think everyone wants me to be. I think it's been a survival skill. I think we all do that to a certain degree in different ways. And you know it's funny like if you look at animals in the wild they also do that like whenever they feel like. They're in danger. They find a way to either blend in or make themselves appear bigger than they actually actually are and it's just so exhausting to spend so much energy on this persona I realize just way easier and more enjoyable way a of life to just be myself and stop trying to earn it all the time and I also learned something huge recently. I was reading meeting Donald Miller's book Donald Miller's amazing. We'll we'll try to have him on but he said something in the book he was talking about this exact thing and he said you know when it comes. It's a love if it's actually really love.

Can you tell us a little bit about your story and how you even got there. Yes so I kind of came through the back door when it came to production and creating show. I have a masters in Child Developmental Psychology and instructional technology and media. So I essentially wanted to teach and the idea teaching media was always fascinating to me You can reach millions of kids right at one time if you can put the very best crayon on preschool curriculum on television. Could you do that. And I was Mr Rogers generation and so I was a kid who right like I could not sit any closer asserted. TV when he was on right to tell the story of meeting him all the time because he was just such an impact fall per cent in my life and so that was between right and that kind of dream. You don't really say out loud like I WANNA do what Mr Rogers said that. That was what was in the back of my head so I think for me. I started started at Nickelodeon in their research. Department did an internship. The internship turned into a position in the research department. Nickelodeon.

"Legacy and to, take that beautiful socio emotional curriculum and put it in some musical strategies that little, ones can can hold onto a news and we're hearing. So many stories about either preschoolers using it using strategies with each other or even singing the man strategy. To the parent to their? Parents to. Help them through a tough time What's using what strategy with each other how would that play out so there's a there's find a way to play together which I could sing I would say But we're finding that in a preschool classroom during dramatic play they're doing a. Lot of that with each other and. Then there's also one about if. You feel so mad, that you wanna roar take a deep breath and count, to four so they're using, that with each other they're? Using that with, their parents it's a really lovely lovely, stories that I got. All the time When you're developing these shows? For, kids what kind of. Research are you doing I mean do do you, get a group of kids in a room and show them. Show them a show or piece of a show. And then other times when they see something and you don't like the reaction and you cut that part I mean what what. Do you do to know that this. Kind of stuff works yes it's. An involving process we, have a formative research department where we have Well we have people with, masters or, a? PHD in educational psychology that take the scripts in a second draft? Into, preschoolers and will read. Them using a protocol to understand whether kids are Rising to the occasion about some of the curriculum concepts that we're putting in the show or whether or not we need to actually brought in it and make make that curriculum even deeper we also talked to consultants throughout the process and we'll bring scripts and like us early drafts of animation, into our classrooms as well to just make sure that we're constantly perfecting. The the episodes because it's one of those things where. We have such lofty goals for every project that we do and it's it needs.

"And what parent at what researchers are increasingly concerned about is actually parental distraction the idea that when, the digital smog is kind of creeping into the home that there's kind of a second hand smoke effect. That we are talking less to our kids and we're less focused on them and it really is that parental focus that their thriving on. When they're. Developing right. So in controlling, our kids Green time we also need to be. Controlling our screen time around our kids yes Angela the children's television act of nineteen ninety had no screens before age two recommendation and my wife. And I sort of use that, as, a, guide with our first child but then by the time number two came around. It was hard to keep screens away from the little one if the older one was watching something has that recommendation held up is it outdated is is it is it seem like implausible to use that, now whereas there a different recommendation that experts are calling for in terms of, screen. Time in the world ones You, know we talk a lot about content and the quality of the content being with something that is the most important thing to. Really look, at in, terms of what our kids. Are consuming and looking at it as we. Do with food understanding the nutrition labels behind that content so when we're talking about under two, we talk a lot about co? Viewing right and really understanding what they're watching why they're watching what level of interactivity they might have and? So, that's really the piece of that. When you're when you're talking about the little ones and. Then we're going over to it's about really trying to read those. Quote, unquote, nutrition labels on the media that our kids are consuming and how, do we, know what is, good for them to consume I mean super y your show that you. Created this is clearly good for them to consume, I feel like my three year old is maybe learning how. To read by watching that show but, are there other other programming? How do you?

Have as the foundation is what we, need to look for so I talk about it as active viewing when they're, a little bit older so you don't have to necessarily. Sit down and watch everything with your child but if you really do know who the craters are what the intent was just, do a little bit of searching either on, a common sense media or on a website such as PBS dot com or sitting down and watching a little bit and understanding. How your, kids are, really taking in with that. Curriculum quote unquote is because we believe everything's. Educational it's just what what it's teaching and should we be watching with them at all times, I mean there's times when they? Get up early on a Saturday morning and I just want to you know go back to bed and? Turn, on the television is that is. That okay or is is there's a term Mm co viewing involve viewing is that crucially important you know.
