Dancing With Elephants is a weekly, family-oriented podcast magazine from Chicago. Hosts Greg, Tonya, Nikolai (age 8) and occasionally Caleb (age 6) discuss current events and review podcasts, books, computer games, movies, and television shows affecting today's 'trying-to-juggle-it-all' family. A couple of personal family stories and a featured Podsafe song round out the show. The way we see it: "Life's always gonna be a three ring circus, so you might as well enjoy it."

Dancing With Elephants Listener Feedbag Show for Episode 068.

Thanks to everyone offering to lend us their Harry Potter 'Books on Tape'. We'll have to take some of you up on your offer.

Feedbag Roll Call:

Amy called with a suggestion for traveling with small children and called to tell us about 3 websites where you can get drive-in information: Drive-ins.com, Drive-in Theater.com, and List of active drive-in theaters. Check out The Car.

Jim of Iowa wrote to tell us that del.icio.us allows for notes.

Papabear called with some suggestions for finding audiobooks (Talking Book World has been forced to discontinue its business in the US) and wrote to tell us about the iPhone Clone. Check out Henson.com for a great behind the scenes podcast produced by Grant Baciocco of The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd.

Tina of tinatheartist.com wrote with her recipes for the sensory table:

PLAY DOUGH
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp cream of tartar (optional)
Heat in heavy saucepan. Cook stirring constantly until forms a ball. Turn out onto floured surface and knead until desired consistency. Store in plastic bags or airtight container in refrigerator.

CORNSTARCH PLAYDOUGH
2 lbs baking soda
1 lb cornstarch
1 1/4 cups water
Cook until consistency of mashed potatoes. Can add more water if needed later.

SILLY PUTTY
2 parts white glue
1 part liquid starch
food coloring
Mix until it achieves the 'right' texture. If the silly putty is too sticky then it's too gluey, add more starch. If the silly putty won't stick to itself then it needs more glue. Store in airtight container in fridge.

OOBLIK
Water and cornstarch
Can't remember the proportions, play around with it. It should flow like a liquid but when you press it feel like a solid, you can roll a ball in your palms for example.

Dale of Tech Talk For Families called with a bone to pick about Dungeons & Dragons, The Dungeons & Dragons Cartoon, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends Cartoon, The Muppet Show, Battle of the Planets, and HDTVs. He also sent a link for making a ring out of a silver half dollar. Check out the TTFF Episode 11 interview with Jason Snell. Also check out Omni-Directional Treadmill. Did we mention Henson.com for a great behind the scenes podcast produced by Grant Baciocco of The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd?

PLEASE STANDBY FOR THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT.

Hi, my name is Nikolai from Dancing With Elephants. Last week on the Dancing With Elephants Feedbag show for Episode 057, my Dad said that DWithE Episode 058 maybe a little late, coming out either Sunday or Monday evening. Well as you can probably surmise, this was not the case. You see, my brother, Caleb, and I were very, very bad this weekend.

Believing that we live under what can best be described as totalitarian rule, we sought to bring our grievances before our oppressors, namely Mommy and Daddy. After a brief exchange of pleasantries, a heated debate ensued culminating in a statement put forth by both of them that, "Nightly visits to Chuck E. Cheese is not a guarantee under the Human Rights Doctrine put forth by the United Nations Charter."

Faced with the fact that we were likely not to receive any gratification from our demands, we staged a mutiny. The battle was messy and for a while, we held the upper hand, until Caleb cracked under the pressure and thirst drove him to ask Mommy for a glass of chocolate milk. Met with dissension in our ranks, our cause became hopeless.

Therefore, as an act of attrition I have take pen to paper and with heavy heart I explain to you, our valued listeners, the reason for the delay in the posting of DWithE Episode 058. My brother and I are truly sorry.

I also ask that you rest easy in the knowledge that DWithE Episode 058 will come out on May 20, 2007 along with the names of the winners of the Let Them Hear You Contest. This will be followed later in the week by the Listener Feedbag Show for Episode 058.

On the path that we walk in life, one is likely to encounter bumps in the road. It is my hope that this one didn't jostle you too much.

I make this confession of my own free will and without duress or coercion being put on me.

Viva la revolucion!
