Bottle Ship is a series for children up to 10 years old, but if you're older and enjoy it too good for you!  

The series is set in a magical world called Dilstonia where all the things we humans lose or throw away end up. In Dilstonia there are little creatures called The Jifflings who live on their little Jiffling ship and it’s their job to fish these lost objects out of their sea and work together to find a new use for them.

Today on the ship The Jifflings find a little bell and Miss Katy tells a story that helps The Hedge not to be quite so lazy!

Ear Snacks for Parents: Anti-Racist Parenting with Alphabet Rockers' Kaitlin McGaw & Tommy Shepherd
It’s been a while, but as we said in our last episode -- we’re still here. We miss you all. As parents and people in this world, we are thinking a lot about the Black Lives Matter movement and racial injustice. As makers of some of the sounds and ideas that go into your kids’ ears, we feel a special connection to your family and a responsibility to address this topic -- anti-racism -- thoughtfully with you and your children on Ear Snacks. Kaitlin McGaw and Tommy Shepherd of Alphabet Rockers generously offered to have a conversation with us about anti-racism, anti-racist parenting, making progressive media for kids and their ongoing Grammy-nominated musical work about identity, race, gender and so much more including their anti-racism course for families: We Got Work to Do. We hope this episode designed for parents (though not inappropriate for kids, we'll release a separate episode intended for young listeners) can help open or enhance conversations that you're having to further the dismantling of racism in our homes, our media, and our communities. There's lots of work to do, and it isn't easy -- but you are not alone. We plan to follow this conversation up with episodes design for children - and we would love your involvement! If you or your children participated in a Black Lives Matter protest, conversation about race, or other form of activism this summer, we would love to have you on the show. Please let us know if your family would like to get involved with these kinds of episodes and we’ll reach out to you as soon as we can. Know someone doing work in this area who we should talk to? Please introduce us! We believe the most impactful way we (Andrew Barkan and Polly Hall, the humans) can affect change is to empower children to think deeply, in an age-appropriate way, about what is happening in society at this moment. We are thankful to connect with parents like you - parents who are raising thoughtful, open, and brave kids. We can be the change we want to see in this world.
