Furloughed Disney Duo Launches Kids’ Podcast
A team of furloughed Disney creatives/educators decided to try and spin something positive out of this unfortunate and challenging pandemic. The project, a musical/educational kids’ podcast, launched on 10.19.2020. While they cannot share the magic of Disney in person due to their furlough, their independent project is all about engaging kids and families in a way that we hope empowers them to take better care of themselves, each other, and our planet.
The podcast is for the whole family (sweet spot is ages 5-12). They also have a handful of free activities/resources they’ve put together for each episode. Take a listen here!
When the COVID pandemic hit, it quickly became clear to Julie Frost and Mike Dombrow that parents and educators would need additional content to help keep kids engaged, positive, and empowered during this
difficult time of distance learning.
At the same time, both Julie and Mike found themselves furloughed from Disney. When life gives you
furlough-lemons, make a kids’ musical adventure podcast!
The dynamic duo of Julie and Mike began in high school over fifteen years ago. Julie (an enthusiastic choral
student) greatly admired her goofy, young, and energetic music teacher who went by the name, “Mr. D” (aka,
Julie began her career starring as Nemo in Disney’s, “Finding Nemo the Musical,” and Mike transitioned his
own career to Disney at the same time. From there, Julie founded a kids’ media production company, KID
Save the World, in Austin, Texas. Mike has continued to mentor and collaborate with Julie on various projects
over the years.
With the theme of kids saving the world, “The Super Secret Hive” follows the adventures of Julie and Mike (and
a cast of many characters) as they navigate a host of timely challenges:
● Ep.1 – “UnBEElievable BEEginnings” — (Honey Bees and Pollinators)
● Ep.2 – “Splish, Splash, Are We Swimming in Trash?!” — (Trash in the Ocean)
● Ep.3 – “Quick! Mike’s Sick!” — (Germs and Our Immune System)
● Ep.4 – “Look at Me, I’m Sandra-T(Rex)” — (Dinos, Inclusion, Kindness, Bullying)
● Ep.5 – “In Space, No One Can Hear You Cry” — (Comets and Loneliness)
● Ep.6 – “Dream On” — (Taking Care of Ourselves, Each Other, and the World We Live In)
Through comedy, song, and heart, they deliver laughs and positive messages that can be enjoyed by the
whole family. As a mighty team of two, they have produced the entire listening experience from voicing all
characters to mixing to score and song composition.
“The Super Secret Hive” will be available wherever you get your podcasts. For more information and free
