On today’s show, we turn the microphone on each other! No guest today… instead, we ask each other some questions about our own purpose and passions, starting with music. Cole tells some stories about discovering his love for making music and the many mentors who helped him on his path. Leah shares a sweet story of her first solo singing performance in kindergarten, and how she is passing her passion along to her son.
Her latest book is called “1001 Secrets Every Birder Should Know – Tips and Trivia For the Backyard and Beyond”. She talked with us today about where the passion for birds came from (when she was 7), migratory birds right now and birds on her life list.
Today on Boozhoo Nana Boozhoo we learn to say “Anokii – Giizhigad” or Labor Day. They talk about work and labor and get a call from the Queen of England who learns to say “Miigwech bizindaawiiyag” – Thank you for listening.

There comes a time when a father decides to take his son into the Boundary Waters for the first time. It could be anyone, really. A mother, aunt, uncle, or family friend all face the same challenges. The goal is to make it safe and to make it fun.
